Thanks Steve for helpful memories of Reading entrance last year . id be interested in ideas on how to pace the prep for this final week not wanting to freak our son out , who is by now verging on 'fed up with the whole thing' and wondering why he wanted to go there in the first place . Wouldnt mind but we've only been working on some practice papers since late Sept !

Hi Guest99,

We had a similar experience after fifteen months of roller coaster revision.

We kept last couple of weeks fun trying to stay on a high but not go higher as we knew that could lead to a crash in performance.

No full papers just odd sections of questions as the mood took us, talked about exam technique. Reading is a bit of an endurance test :cry: four papers ( from a possible five subjects ) in one day, I am sure a lot of boys run out of steam so the "give it your best shot, keep going, don't give up, if you are finding it tough so is everyone else and whatever happens we are very proud of all the effort you have put in, etc" pep talk.

We had purchased a gift for after the exam but gave it to him the night before, games console helped to take his mind off things.

Good luck & best wishes,


stevew61

PS My next one is due to sit in 2010 so your feedback would be welcomed. :)
