My dd is taking her Kent Test on 8th September. She is our eldest daughter so it's the first time we've been through this! I am home tutoring and using the Bond books. We have made great progress with VR and NVR, and English has always been her strong subject. Maths is definitely my main concern. We have been doing half an hour of maths most day over the summer holidays, and daily 10 minute sessions of English, VR and NVR.
To be honest, we do not mind if she passes or not as we have a good local comp which is closer than our nearest grammar, and it has amazing facilities. My problem is that I seem to keep forgetting this fact! I have to keep reminding myself she is only 10 years old and she can only do so much each day. I don't want her to feel under pressure but at the same time I want her to be motivated to do her best.
How does everyone else feel in the final weeks up to the exam? I'm finding it hard to keep perspective and have a sense of panic about the whole thing now.
