Thank you for posting those - I am sure that Etienne will add them to her Q&As on the next revision. I have my fingers crossed for you!
How did he feel on the morning of the tests?
How did he feel after the tests?
How did he feel after he found out his result?
Does he tend to rush his work and therefore make careless mistakes?
All are looking for reasons why the result might not have been as expected. There are no right or wrong answers, but it is always good to refer back to the academic evidence wherever possible when answering these questions.
Filler questions (mainly):
Does he read?
What does he like to do in his spare time?
What does he want to be when he is older?
Would he be able to cope in a fast paced GS?
There are traps here - if he prefers the Beano to Artemis Fowl, for example. Hardly any child knows what they want to do when they are older by the age of 10/11, and I always think this is a rather pointless filler question! As for "does he read?" - I think I would be hard pushed not to say: "If he couldn't, I think he might have had a bit more trouble with the 11+
" (Sorry - getting facetious now!)
Quite case specific:
He does alot of other activities, would he be able to prioritise?
What language does he speak to his sister in? (as we speak a 2nd language at home)
The first one shows a possible risk in putting forward too many extra-curricular interests at an appeal!
Did he do practice papers at home?
I wonder if this is a gradual move away from the tradition that Bucks panels do not not ask about tutoring? As Bucks have now softened their line on whether tutoring makes a difference, perhaps panels feel that they have a little more freedom in this area?
If other people have the time to post the questions they were asked it would be very helpful.
Now a question for you pre2407. May I ask - if you won't think I am being nosey - why you took your daughter along, and how the panel responded to her presence? If you prefer not to mention it on the Forum that is fine, but I would most interested in talking to you about it via PM.
