Just wondered if any of you out there are starting EARLY with the old nerves?
Starting "early" with the nerves??? Once I got Christmas out of the way I settled down to a good long worry. Funnily enough, not that concerned about DD not getting into Grammar. She's a much more down to earth adaptable child than she was when I first started 11 plus plotting a couple of years ago and I think she'll do well wherever she goes. I just don't want her to feel like a failure because she wasn't, on the day, one of the very top of the very top. I know a fair few 11 plus not-quites who still, as adults, have hang ups about it. Believe this is one of the reasons why DD's school is quite anti 11 plus - head teacher was an 11 plus near miss himself!!
