Am looking for a little piece of advice relating to the selection review we are submitting for our DD. She was very reluctant to sit her 11+ we think mainly because she has seen 2 of her older sisters take the test and both are now at grammar school. She was always very aprehensive about the expectations on her. We entered her anyway on the basis that she could always change her mind and she did decide she wanted to try it in the end. It wasn't until July that she wanted to give it a go so her preparation was minimal to be honest. What I would like to know is, do you think it's worth mentioning this as a possible reason for narrowly missing the qualifying mark (she got 119)?? Or is it likely a panel will be of the opinion that no preparation is required for the test anyway? I am very cautious of saying the wrong thing.
Can I say that I have found this site an invaluable resource over the years. Thank you
