A major part of the entrance examination is the verbal reasoning test. We use the
same test provider as the county and many candidates will be familiar with the kind
of question set from similar tests they have been given as practice for local grammar
The Moray House tests have a high reputation for their accuracy and consistency.
The scoring is objective and the raw scores are adjusted to take account of the
different ages at which the pupils may take the test.
If any family wants to look at the kind of question that will be set, there are a
number of similar verbal reasoning practice tests which can be purchased from
books shops including “Smiths”. The publishers of the Moray House tests do not
recommend any particular one for preparation for their questions.
