I honestly cannot wait for it to be over. I don't know how much prep others have done but DD did some work on most days, including a couple of timed papers. Nothing too excessive. She really wants to pass
I've explained to her (many times) that she's going to do well in whichever school she goes to - if she doesn't make grammar then she'll be top band of her upper school - she's sat a banding test which has confirmed this. I work in the upper school system and some are making very good improvements in terms of behaviour/standards and achievement at the moment with some fantastic staff.
Roll on Thursday 3pm!
