So pleased she survived ok. My DS still there - session 2- and my stomach is churning for him, he was so nervous all the way...just hoping and praying he will feel ok when he gets out, have stopped caring about the result!

My best wishes go out to you all... we now have 1 year until we face what you have today. This is a great forum, one where real people are honest.

Yes, relieved that the exam is over for my daughter! Especially after what we had to go through yesterday morning( the exam day!). We had to drive to the exam centre, an hour and 15 minute drive from where we live and at 6.40 am, all set and ready to go, the car wouldn't start!! Battery completely drained!! Had to arrange a cab urgently but thankfully reached the centre by 8.10 am! :)
More relieved that she didn't panic! Results keenly awaited......

Thank goodness it's all over - in all honesty DS is not hopeful. He had an afternoon playing with friends but in the evening he was very flat. Of Course tired, but very pensive. Said he found the VR harder than any of the practice papers. A worry as we were relying on that! :?
I know we've all said it many times but the reality on the day is that this is a HUGE thing to ask of 10 years olds - which is what most are, including my DS who is only 10 by a few weeks.
I'm thinking back to the teachers at school who counselled all the parents to think long and hard before embarking on this process.....hm, some wise words coming back to me now.
Oh well......good luck all. Hope all DCs have a relaxing day today. :)
