Post subject:  Wallington Grammar School Entrance Exam format

Hi all,

Just found this website forum and it`s very useful.

Can anyone tell me (from previous knowledge maybe) the formats of the Entrance papers at Wallington Grammar.

By this, I mean are the exams in standard format or multiple choice format.

Also, as they do not use NFER papers, what practice papers would mock the real exam questions.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks all.

The reason for my question is that I`m timing my son with practice questions, say for example 80 questions over 1 Hr, but want to narow this down so that I can mock the real WGS exams.

Help please !!!

Does anyone know what papers and material would best suit the exam for WGS?

Also would you know how many verbal reasoning questions you have to answer in the 20mins or so provided.

Thanks
