English paper is only marked in case of an appeal by your school before we get results.

In answer it doesnt get marked (unless above). We have only done an hour just giving tips and how to make her story exciting and that is more than enough I think.

Yep that's right. The beauty of the Kent 11+ is that one can get into a grammar school, even a superselective, without being able to write, as long as you can read and put a mark in the right boxes!!

thank you so much for your reply.i m sure my daughter will do very good in maths, verbal and n verbal.but she is not very good in english as english is her second language.we bn here in uk only for 3 years.so we dont have much knowledge abou 11+.Infact we came to know about it 6 months back.so,she hasnt got much time for preperation.but still we r very hopefull as she has worked very hard.thank u once again for ur reply.

I bet you're right. And once she's been immersed in English for the rest of year 6, I bet she'll catch up. Does your school have any advice or extra support for written English for your daughter?
