Thanks for your quick response Guest and for making me feel better!!! As i kept thinking my daughter will never have a good chance if that was the case.
My daughter is trying for the CCHS as her second choice on the form, we have gone over areas that will be needed for the maths exam however only going through the past papers as i don't know what other books to get to practice in this short period of time left.
I understand that the VR has to be of a higher mark than maths and english papers and she seems to be doing well in practice papers over 84 %.
If you don't mind me asking did your daughters get through if so then what other practice did you do with them besides the original CSSE papers?? and a rough idea of marks would be helpful to what should be expected in maths and english.
Your guidance would be appricated.
One daughter got 88% in her VR the other 84%. Both their maths and English were in the 70%'s. When my last daughter started (she is now year
, the last girl in was placed 174th so there is room for those who don't come in the first 120. The marks for the current year 7's was considered low - take a look at under Essex - I think it is called something like "scores no names..". The link would be from around March just after the 11+ results were published. Good luck.
