Which mock was this? Did you get the papers back so you can go through them. How different were the results to results you were getting at home. You can expect a drop of at least ten percent when your dd is in the exam environment. There is no point in keeping on doing papers at this late stage. What you need to do is find out where she is losing the marks and make up papers with those questions and keep on doing those until she understands them. VR is simply speed. Did she manage to finish? Did she lose the marks because she did not finish or beause she got them wrong? You need to be getting marks in the high eighties. The IPS papers come in ten minute tests, I found those very helpful in a little and often approach. I would try another mock especially one where you get the papers back. What materials have you been using? DG
hi DG, thanks so much for you reply.
the mock test was in a tuition center, we did get the papers back and the tuition center did go through the answers. she says she understands them now. At home we were doing walsh and she was getting 78% but i expected that as they are one of the hardest papers. i think i will follow your adivce and stop papers for now, what can she do to build on her basic knowledge any particular books?
she did manage to finish all the questions, she lost marks because she got them wrong as well as careless mistakes. i'll order the IPS papers. do you think its possible to work over these few weeks to bump the percentage up? im now beginning to panic!!!
