Your SW HERTS and Latymer Maths papers will be GL format Maths so I suggest you put all your focus on that format as these will be the first two papers that he will sit.
Which school is your first choice?
If it is not DAO I would suggest that you leave the Standard format Maths papers such as HABS for the Maths second round and focus on the MC format that he is doing so much better with. He will need a strong score on the GL Latymer Maths paper to help him be in the top 700 of the 2500 plus Latymer applicants as they will be the only applicants who will go through to the second round.

Hi
We are going to be sitting 11+ for SW, Latymer and DAO next month and my sons maths score vary quite a fair bit. on the GL MC maths he has been scoring +90%, as well as Latymer paper 80-90% however for papers such as Habs he scores 50% odd.. He also did a paper for Sevenoask where he ended up achieveing 65%
Is this down to nerves and reading the question? I am quite nervous given we are so close to the end that his results are changing
What should we be doing to get some consistency?

Yes there is - this is GCSE level maths, see for example https://thirdspacelearning.com/gcse-mat ... sequences/

How would you work out the answer to increasing gaps in a sequence? Working out the 100th number for example.
so the sequence would be for example 3 7 12 18 25 33 42. The gap increases by 1 each time (4,5,6,7,8,9 etc)
Is there a formula for finding the nth term? I can only find a formula when the gap is the same each time.
Thanks

Badly worded question!
a) doesn’t make it clear if the first day is counted (implies not from the wording. but not clearly)
b) doesn’t specify what day of the week it is as that couldnchange the answer (though by making it over 3 weeks I think they are trying to make it not matter: childncould lose time on checking though).
This is a “time-waster” question type: a diligent child would waste 5-6 minutes trying to ensure they got it right: sometimes teaching a child that if it looks super complicated, give it a minute, educsted guess, then move on will actually get them more marks than getting ..read more

I don't think anything is wrong in this question. It is 3 times. If they first met on Monday then they will meet every subsequent Monday.

How many local secondary schools could you reasonably get your DD to to take the test? Try emailing the Head of Maths at each and ask whether they would be willing to register your DD along with their school's entrants? You would probably have to pay the fee (negligible) for the extra entry (DS2 sat the Junior Mathematical Challenge at a local grammar school in year 6), plus I suspect that even if the school was willing in principle, given the usual age range for entry to the IMC, they might want to see evidence of your DD's suitability for that level.
Where did she sit the JMC (if she did ..read more
