How did your daughters find the tests today?

My daughter didn't finish the Verbal Reasoning but said she had plenty of time for Maths - did yours have similar experience?

hi. My daughter also found more time left for maths but found them both difficult - I didn't go but my husband said there were a few girls upset. This experience is stressful for everyone isn't it?! And Devon forum often very quiet - well plenty of views to a post but few replies which is a shame....

Thanks for reply!! My daughter's friends seem to have had similar experience. Guess no one else wants to give anything away - it seems to be such a secret society!! Probably didn't help as I didn't put it in Devon area.

I too saw girls sobbing - think if mine was like that I'd have called it day - i personally could not put my child through it if they were that upset. If they couldn't cope with the pressure of a practice, what will they be like when it really matters. Still, maybe they were just testing the water.

At least they had a practice - we are putting my son forward for TBGS and they just have to hit the ground running. He has never been in exam conditions before so I am hoping his usual sang froid holds out.

Good luck with the real thing.

Are you sure there is no practice? Lots of PTFAs run them as a fundraising event! The one our girls did cost £30. There was one run by the boys grammar PTA on the same day.

there has been no mention of it at the meetings and it is not on the website but I will ring the school to check. Thanks for the tip - seems like a good fundraising event!
