Our eldest is taking the 11plus for Gloucestershire in a couple of weeks time. He's attended tutoring since last October and has practised regularly, including a "cramming" week where he had daily tutoring in groups every morning (which apparently was "really fun!" Strange child
His tutors haven't raised any concerns over his prospects and when asked directly, said they expected him to be fine. However, over the past month his practice scores have declined sharply and he's now averaging around 50% whereas he was previously over 80%.
He's been taking CGP CEM tests which seem very difficult compared to some other tests (Letts for example). In fact I got him to do a Letts one yesterday to boost his confidence - he scored 78% which made him feel a bit better.
Has anyone else found this happening? Is it pre-exam burn-out? It's like he's forgotten what a ****** synonym is (not to mention those hideous jumbled up sentence things). Reassure me PLEASE!
