Simple rules (in my opinion!) when preparing for 11+
a) Ignore statements from other parents which go "My DC scores xx% on YY papers...".
That's nice... but we just need to concentrate on our DC
You can, however, keep generic remarks from teachers/coaches or links to school admissions stats in the back
of your mind, just so that you are aware where you stand and what the potential improvement needs to be.
b) Ignore statements like "We get our DC to do nn papers per day" or "our goal is to reach level xx on zz"..
Again... you know your DC best and how he or she needs to be prep'd.
Of course, you should be fully engaged to do the research on what the preparation should entail and
what level of work needs to be done - by both yourself and your DC.
Some advice from teachers/coaches on this board is extremely valuable.. you just need to find the right
