And I have never been so stressed in my life!!!

DS1 sits the Whitgift exam on 8 jan and Trinity on 10 jan. Am not too concerned about his performance in Maths/VR as he regularly gets 85-95% on Bond/NFER :D but his English is ropey, the highest he has scored is in the high 70s, he did a paper today and got 59%!!!!!

DS1 is in yr 5 and recently gained level 5c in his SATS, his teacher and tutor think he will be fine but I am not confident in his comprehension abilities and am so stressed have had to turn to Marlboro Lights.....

Any tips to drag me through this would be most appreciated.

Hi, Mummyto3: Bond Assensement Papers (English) have a lot of Comprehension practice. Still 3 wks to go and you have a lot of time to practise them. Suppose do two of them everyday, you will make it by then. :lol: :lol:

Thanks Geling

He finishes school this week, so will put in extra effort for the comprehension.

I would think this year private schools are keen to get candidates, and DS1 seems doing well enough...
only an impression

good luck with it
