But still unfortunate for a really bright child to miss out due to one momentary lapse of concentration.
Yes, however a bright child will do well which ever school they go to.
One exam will not prognosticate the rest of their life.
We have to just all hope that our DC did what we feel they are capable of, on the actual day.
My DS knows he didn't do his best on the QM exam, he knew as soon as he came out.
I have to take some responsibility for this as he got into a habit of rushing through and not checking if his answer made sense and making to many silly mistakes.
I advised to just double check and he took it a little too literally and ended up running out of time, hence missing many questions out.
With the consortium exam he did manage to answer the majority of the questions (correctly i hope) and said he doesn't recall missing many out!
Time will tell......
