My DS did ok in his exam. One of his Peers didn't get the score needed. When his friend's mum rang me for info on applying to other schools I helped her as much as I could. I told DS not to get big headed about his score as it was not a guaranteed result etc etc.
His friend has been picking on him at school this week and I cant help but feel its over the results as they have never had issues before. Just wondering if anyone else's child has experienced negative behaviour from their peers. Or even if people have teased their child about their score.
Unfortunately it is a competitive environment and not everyone can come out "winners", but it is always sad when someone reacts to bad news by having a go at others. Last year my son was the only one in his class who got even took the exam never mind get offered a place so there was no issue. This year is different as ds2 is one of five in the class. With three of them there is no problem but I can see one maybe presenting some issues. If they arise we will deal with it but would prefer if it all just moved along without issue.
But Both of them were told go in and tell the teacher how they got on and other children if asked.
