Year 7 Assessment day programme
Wednesday 4 January 2017
0845-0915 Arrive and register in the Dining Hall
Parents move to the Pamoja Hall for a brief talk by the Head, Dr Katy Ricks.
After this parents depart.
0930-1515 During this time candidates will, in rotation, take part in the following:
English test (one hour)
Maths test (one hour)
Verbal reasoning test (one hour)
Group interview (40 minutes) **
Tour of the campus
1515 Parents arrive to collect candidates from the Dining Hall where there will be tea available.
** During the group interviews five or six candidates will be given a few tasks to do as a group and will be observed by two members of staff. The observers are looking here, not for academic strength, but for candidates who are good team-players, willing to contribute ideas and to listen to those of others. No preparation for this task is necessary or advised.
Candidates who have been granted extra time or word processing provision will be accommodated within the above timetable but will have a slightly earlier start. This will be explained to parents of these candidates nearer the time.
You will find past Maths and English papers and syllabus information here. There are no sample Verbal Reasoning papers but any of the 11+ practice papers such as the Bond or NFER series will be useful preparation.
