I've been turning to this forum for all sorts of advice since my 1st DD sat the 11+ 3 years ago. You're all amazing,thank you!
Unfortunately my second DD hasn't been as lucky this year and although she passed the Medway test & scored very well in NVR & VR,she dropped 14 marks (yikes!) in Maths. She's was devastated at first (especially as OH read the email wrong & phoned to tell us she'd passed,a good 10 minutes before he realised his mistake & phoned back in a panic!).
She really want us to appeal to her sisters GS & would love to attend the open morning & eve (she's never actually been through the door,but her sister loves it!).
I'm happy to do so but I'm afraid of looking (and feeling) like a fraud,especially as there will be several girls from my daughters class looking around at roughly the same time (they're not very kind parents tbh & I'm sure I'll get some disapproving glances). The only nice thing is that I will be taking another of her friends whose parents will also be appealing.
I suppose my question is this...am I doing the right thing in taking her?
Am I being a complete wimp in worrying about other people?
I'm still on a bit of a roller coaster after the result!
Does anyone think I'm bonkers trying to appeal with a Maths score like that?
Any advice would be so gratefully received......I'm all over the place
