Getting real stressed now, any hints or tips on what we should be doing now. Is it normal for kids to ease off just before the test or are they silently worried?

I eased off with my two as it approached (my eldest stopped any prep about a fortnight before in fact!). My only last minute tip would be to just be really careful about answering every question - don't turn over two pages at once or anything awful like that.

Good luck :-)

We have basically done what we can at this point - far too much homework coming from school to fit much else in.

Good luck everyone

Thank you both....
I think Dd has taken in as much as she can now and is probably bored too. I feel it's probably right to take a breather now and just touch on techniques here and there up until 1st Oct.

This has been a brilliant site and I'll certainly return to tell you how Dd got on......good luck to all 11+ candidates this year wherever you are.......you all deserve to do well for trying so hard and no doubt you all will go onto better things in the future whatever the outcome!

Hi Kendrick mum,

Reading Boys is surrounded by residential streets and there is tons of on-street parking both restricted (1-2 hrs) or unrestricted.

You'll be fine....Good luck!

Just like to add a warning about parking.
On the open evening, as we walked back to the bus stop, traffic wardens were about. Yes, @ 8:15pm, they were circling the area. Obviously knew that Kendrick had an open evening and that some parents would be chancing it. Saw three cars with tickets just one street.

I'm guessing they will also know when exams are and will be out and about.

Yes, there are always traffic wardens around Reading school, morning and afternoon.

Have also spotted a couple of clamping vans about. So plan parking arrangements ahead folks.
