Table 1.1 – Levels of difficulty

There is a slight age overlap between the different NVR tests. In general, the tests are most suited to pupils of the age indicated in the test title, but as there is a slight overlap with the test above and below (in the case of the upper two tests), in some instances you may have a choice of two tests for any one pupil. If in doubt, pupils of borderline age who are expected to be low scoring should take the test for the younger age range, whereas able pupils should take the test for the older age range.
