When is your exam and what does it involve. If he is reasonably bright and willing to work hard over the summer there should be no problem. One of mine began late August last summer and passed comfortably for our local grammars (November exam).

I would think you have plenty of time for preparation.

Not sure how it works in Birmingham, but here in Kent it is too late to register for the exam now (ours are in September). Might be worth checking when the cut off day is

It's not too late to register for any of the Birmingham grammar entrance exams (but you probably knew that already). As to whether it's too late to prepare - that's probably impossible to answer, it depends entirely on your son. Of course, you won't know if you don't try - you have two or three months before you have to come to a decision, why not start preparation and see how it goes?
