As the Warwickshire and Birmingham tests are supposedly going to be the same this year, I had a look at the Birmingham Grammar Schools website (http://www.birminghamgrammarschools.org
). It states that there will be question booklets and the answers will be recorded on a separate sheet.
Could be as much a test of coordination skills for some of the children I think.
Apart from that it seems the same with 2 x 45 minute sections, VR, NVR, Maths, Comp etc.
Each year there seems to be something that changes - keeps us on our toes (*mild hysterical laugher*)!
