On a personal level, I've always had "last-minute-crammer" tendencies
Only a handful of times have I been organised enough to revise slowly and methodically with 3 weeks to go
Needless-to-say, I've worked hard to encourage good habits in both DD's and to ensure that they don't follow my bad habits.
Manana you nearly made me spit my drink all over my screen when you wrote "BS VR" - I'm coming close to feeling the need to write "BS" in tandem with anything to do with 11+ at the moment
Where's that "tongue-in-cheek" emoticon when you need it?
We'll probably do a combination of everything too, as DD tells me she'll panic if we really slow it down a virtual standstill next week and it's all about how she feels, at the end of the day. I trust her to tell me how she's feeling because she always has and if/when she says "no more at the moment, please" we'll stop. Hasn't happened more than three times and I've always been able to spot that she's waning, ahead of her actually saying it.
