 Post subject: 12+ in 3 weeks
PostPosted: Thu Mar 22, 2007 5:31 pm 
We've been quite good and kept up the daily tests this year - just 10qs 3 or 4 times a week.
Problem is finding full tests that my son hasn't done. Anyone know about the Walsh set? They are the only set we haven't tried and i don't think we've done the Tutors series either.
Can anyone advise.
Thanks

Dear njg

Firstly, I have just read your post re late transfer appeal...well done.

If you have not completed the Tutors papers/CDs get them NOW!

Have you read this recent thread?

Good luck

Ok, next set of questions!
Say my son passes the 12+ and he doesn't get a place because of spaces at his first choice grammar - will he still be offered places at his second choice if available?
Also if there are no places and his qualification only lasts the year, does he go on a waiting list for both grammar schools?

Yes - if he qualifies they will look to see if any of your choices can offer a place.

They may also offer you another Grammar if you are in catchment - you can do a transfer appeal as well!! [Just when you thought you'd got past all that!!]

This is just to wish everyone taking the 12+ (children and parents!!!) the very best of luck with the test tomorrow (no longer 3 weeks!). Especially njg and Junior, if you are reading this.

Thank you so much to everyone who has PMed me with good wishes for my son. We have had a roaring couple of days on practice papers, so who knows? :roll: :roll: :roll:

Dear Sally-Anne [ and other 12/13 plussers]

Good Luck for tomorrow....

If its an early breakfast, then do not forget to eat a banana [ the child that is!] just before the test, otherwise those blood sugars will be dropping!

Dear Etienne

'Augur'......now there is a good word for my vocab list!

Thank you all so much. The support I've had from people on the forum is really amazing.

The 12+ is really rather a lonely process, as there are so few children going through it, so it is great to have the forum to turn to, and to have so much help forthcoming is fantastic. Patricia, ForumAdmin & Guest55 - take a bow! On second thoughts, make that two weeks in Mauritius, five star beach hotel, all expenses paid.

Etienne has been wonderful too, but she is the one person whose advice I really hope we won't need once tomorrow's result comes through! (Transfer appeal aside, of course.... :roll: )
