My son did lose marks by not reading the question properly , and it was probably only in the couple of weeks before he started reading the question twice and re checking his answer ....so there is still hope !
The questions are quite sneaky at times as I found the question Yoyo has posted as an example where they are asking how many are not white...they will put on the answer sheet the answer to that which is correct, but also the answer will be there for how many are
white...to catch out the children who haven't read the questions properly ! Of course that always was my son
. You just have to keep plugging on and at this point I did have a good bash at his weak spots and in between moan at him about rushing.He has since told me he couldn't be bothered in the run up and knew he would put his all into it on the day.....so I needn't have worried .
