I still feel awfully sorry for the children when I see them walking into the grammar schools on exam day!
I vividly remember standing outside in the front car park waiting for my eldest DS. The children came out all looking shell shocked. I only remember seeing a couple of children who were actually smiling.
My DS didn't talk to me on the way home in the car and wouldn't discuss in detail about the exam. I remember him saying that he hadn't finished the V.R. and had left 5 or 6 questions at the end!
Thank goodness that I only have two children and that after Saturday, there will be no more 11+ studies!
