Why do some of the recommendations above show me independent school papers?

 

The main difference between independent and grammar school papers is the question format. Independent schools usually assess with standard format questions, which means students need to write out full answers. Grammar schools usually use multiple-choice format questions.

 

Whilst The Latymer School is a grammar school, they actually use the independent school (standard) format for some of their exams, which is why they are included in the recommendations above.
