Hi all
Can anyone help? My DD is good at comprehension, reads a lot, has a wide vocabulary etc but she's currently too slow when doing comprehension exercises. A 1-hour comprehension paper is currently taking her 1 hour 20/30 minutes.
She'll be taking exams in January, so we have plenty of time to practice, but I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how she can speed up?
Thanks in advance
(PS I have also posted this in the English section)

Hi Jess

My daughter was also slow in the early stages of completing tests. I wouldn't worry-she has loads of time to speed up. Even in the 6 weeks hols my daughter wasn't completing papers on time-but in October she passed both selection exams that she went for. I would have thought that at this stage it's more important to get the answers right. She will soon notice similar type questions popping up and know how to respond to them. At least if the weather stays nice she will have the incentive to go outside and play when she has finished!!
Good Luck

Thanks abcdef, that's reassuring. We'll keep plodding on then...
