    Anyone taking the 12 plus exam, know anyone who is or has taken it in the past?
    For those of you who don't know what this exam is, it's an entrance test to grammar schools at year 8 level (exam is taken in year 7).
    Any advice on how to do well/prepare in the English section?

    Is your English story writing or comprehension? I've seen both versions used.

    In past papers I've seen, reading comprehension and story writing have been used. Does it have to be one or the other? The student I'm tutoring hasn't specified whether it's only one or the other

    Usually its only one, may be both though. Perhaps check up with the school they're taking the exam for?
    I mean I know some people who studied both but come the exam only one of them was on it.
