Found out today that DD has been offered a place at Kendrick. Really pleased that we have made it and haven't had to wait too long. DD is on a school trip this week so she won't know till she ges back on Friday.
For anyone else out there on the waiting list, we were originally 18th in joint 111th position, looks like the list is moving quite fast.
Thank you to everyone on this forum, you really do provide a valuable resource for parents who have limited knowledge of the 11+ process, what to expect etc...It's 3 years till I have to go through the 11+ experiance again this time for DS and RBS.
My DD also used the standard NFER papers, we were advised against using BOND. Doing word puzzles like crosswords is a good way to improve word matching skills. For anyone wanting to know the actual scores required, My DD's raw scores on the papers were 87/100 VR and 65/75 NVR - so roughly 87%,g ood enough to get her on the waiting list, she is end of March born.
Thank you again, now going to start panicking about whether DD will be able to cope!!!!
