We´re planning on sitting language aptitude tests and I found a sample one on the web. Has anybody ordered the full versions at some point in recent years and would consider selling them on? Am open for any other tips regarding this!

What language? What level? For what purpose?

At our local the aptitude test is based on a more obscure language . I know they give verb root examples and they ask the child to work out other verbs from that, not sure what the rest of the test is though.

Ah, got you now - the tests to see what sort of language learner you'll be. Sorry, misunderstood.

kodokan I think you have misunderstood againgrin- Some secondary schools select children with an apptitude for language. The tests are about potential rather than abitlity which is why they chose a more obscure language.
DS's friend won a place on apptitude for language and has just passed a japanese gcse with an A* in year 9. He was expected to do a lot of extra language work but all school are different

DS won a place at his school through apptitude for technology and apart from having to take a technology gcse, it has made no difference at all to his schooling.
