Here are the changes as announced by CSSE
The CSSE group has decided to make some changes to the Selection Test for 2015 entry.
The decision has been taken in order to bring the papers more in line with the expectations of Level 5, KS2, National Curriculum, for both English and Mathematics and to better reflect the educational experience of primary school pupils.
There will not be a discrete Verbal Reasoning Paper.
New English Paper
The new English paper (in line with the expectation of Level 5, KS2, National Curriculum) will comprise:
Comprehension, grammar and vocabulary questions
Two pieces of creative writing
Applied reasoning (literacy/verbal)
The paper will last 1 hour, with some additional reading time and will be worth 60 marks in total.
New Mathematics paper
The new Mathematics paper (in line with the expectations of Level 5, KS2, National Curriculum) will comprise:
Questions consistent with KS2 of the National Curriculum
Applied reasoning (mathematical/non-verbal)
The paper will last 1 hour and be worth 60 marks in total.
One set of familiarisation papers will be available to download from the CSSE website by January 2014.
