Hello! Please can anyone advise what is involved in the 20 min English component of the test / interview for 13+ entry? Is it a very short comprehension or a composition? I read somewhere it’s a comprehension but 20 min seems very short for that! Thank you!

I would very much want to know as well. I've heard it is more of a verbal interview, e.g. reading the passage and then discussing it and/or writing an opinion

I thought it was a for/against discussion type of thing

DS was asked to read a poem aloud and then discussed the poem with an interviewer. It was all very relaxed.

Do you know if all the boys were/are given an English and Maths component to the interview? My son told me that some boys at his school just a non-academic interview.
