Does anyone know how long after taking the tests we find out the results? My daughter is hoping to sit the Kent Test in September, she’s really hoping to get into Grammar School and we’ve lots of practice material for her to work through this summer. It’s going to be a nervous wait for the results though!
Thanks, does anyone have any tips for how to best practice? It’s my first time going through this so I want to help prepare my daughter as much as possible! I think the non-verbal reasoning section is going to be where she’ll need to practice most. Even I struggle with a few of them!
I think it really is a case of practice makes perfect with the non-verbal reasoning questions. Unfortunately sometimes you’ll see the answer straight away and other times it seems impossible! Getting used to the styles of question will really help your daughter (and you ;)) get used to recognising the patterns and sequences. For cube net questions we found that drawing it on paper and actually making the cube net was extremely helpful and also fun! Best of luck to your daughter!
With sequence or odd one out questions it really helps to know WHY. Even if your daughter doesn’t get the questions correct first time it can help if she can ultimately understand WHY the answer is what it is she may be able to spot a similar pattern in other questions 🙂
The non-verbal reasoning and verbal reasoning and marked together in one paper so hopefully if your daughter is okay with the verbal reasoning side of the paper there shouldn’t be too many questions she’ll struggle on 🙂
