How hard was math Kent test 2017?

Hi,
My dd is so bright. Aways above excpected in every topic. I was shocked when she run out of time before answering 8 questions in math!, random guess for 3 of them and no guessing at all for 5 of them !!! She said that she started from bottom of the test to the top!!I asked her why, she said because I wanted to get over with the hard questions because I was so sure that I will answer the top easy questions at no time! Now she deeply regret it because she new that she wasted time 2 of bottom questions while she could use this time to answer all the top questions. Wrong decision made her panic! how hard was the math test?

Hi Zara,

Your poor daughter- it is so easy to make a mistake under time pressure; it is clear as an adult to realise it makes sense to do the straightforward questions first, but unless a child understands that each question carries the same mark, it is not necessarily clear to them.

However, a few guesses may not matter if she has done well on the questions she has answered, as historically speaking the pass mark in maths has been around 50% in previous years.

I hope she doesn't fret about it, and that it has gone well enough.

Did she find the other sections straightforward?

Thank you,

Tiffany

Thanks Tiffany for your reply,
She thinks she answered them correctly,only 3 at the bottom were hard but the rest took time. So she thinks 17 are correct ,3 guesses and the top 5 were left blank. I am worried because the silly mistakes increases at the bottom especially they give expected answers ! Fingers crossed that the pass mark should be the same as every year.
