Hi, not sure if this is ok to post or not. If not just delete!

My daughter is training for her 11+ and she is doing great. but none of her friends seem to be sitting it
and I feel she seems to be a little frustrated by this as she cant share what she is doing with any of her friends.
so if anyone has a like minded daughter thats doing 11+ and would like to work with another girl doing the same please inbox me. I dont mind traveling even to east london as we go there to see parents anyway or even kent :S

I know it seems crazy as in away its her compitition but I really feel she needs a friend that even understand her and
what hard work she is putting in. At the end of the day I dont see the problem or see it as a threat infact it could improve both children!

Also if anyone has any suggestions of what to do please feel free to comment !

Sarah

The Essex and Kent 11+ exams are significantly different, although there is some overlap with maths and VR is very similar.

Essex has no NVR and does have an English paper.

Kent had VR, NVR, Maths and a piece of written work, which is only looked at in case of borderline score

Thats very true yo yo the testing is different . However there are other selective schools in essex that do their own testing which includes NVR and there is as you pointed out the overlap of the VR and maths!
also it was not just for the study! It was for friendship to so that she knows she is not the only child going through this prosses as none of her school friends are taking the 11+ and I feel sometimes she feels alone in doing her work and
needs a friend that understands and is doing the prep. if that makes sense:S

Luckyly for my DD she has her dads brains and not mine lol
