Well I am sick with worry and have thought of nothing else all weekend. My child was properly prepared for the 11+ and was getting 80-90% in practice nfer papers but Saturday's Kent Test he just lost it. I think he had a blind panic and each question just got worse for him. He has not been the same child since and we have Bexley this week and I'm worried this has scared him so much he will feel he's forgotten everything he's learnt.

Any suggestions about trying to combat this panic/nerves for him.

Heidi I have replied to your question on the other thread but will repeat myself...get him to have a look at his previous papers where he has scored well, build up his confidence, and also reassure him that you will be happy as long as he tries his best. Good luck. :)

Can he take a good luck charm in with him? Something familiar to him will aid his confidence.

Explain to him the tests he has just done were a trial run to get used to what it's like in exams, and now he's familiar with 'proper' exams he can use it to his benefit (ie: he has an advantage over the others because he knows what goes on - big it up to instill the confidence in him).

Also tell him it doesn't matter what the outcome is because whatever happens you are just pleased that he's trying and thats all which can be asked of anyone.

Hopefully he can recover in time - fingers crossed for you.
