My DS is state school and is preparing for 9+, he covers curriculum at school and at home additional books (CGP, Bond). I am conscious that he can technically covere curriculum, but he still needs exam practice (timed). How would I help is with this..Do Bon papers have a time limit?

Yes you are supposed to do them to time. Iirc there are 10 minute test booklets.

The 10 minute tests aren’t good for time pressure - they aren’t pressured. The cgp ones have sample tests and suggested times I think

Thank you Michaela. So bond papers are they meant to be done in 25 min?

I think the longer tests are better timed. On maths use schofueld and Simms mental maths done to a time - just cut it by 30 sex’s each time.
