Dear all,

My DD is sitting for 11plus late this year and early next year, currently in year 5, her tutor is however now going through past papers with her, do you think it is too early, or about right, :? she said it is a bit late for going through topics.

We have been going over pat papers for months now. Our tutor is now only revising with the children and they are going over past papers in detail at each session. The exams are only a few months away, our first ones are in October and this is a real opportunity for the children to consolidate all they have learnt. So I would agree with your tutor. Hope this helps.

We started using our practice papers in the middle of August last year, i/e about a month before the exam. Not a great move. Will start earlier with next DD. About now seems sensible so that there is time to work on problems indentified in the papers.

I wouldn't get the tutor to do too many practice papers, perhaps it would be better to let your DC do the paper with yourselves and ask your tutor to go over the bits where there are difficulties. (having said that we didn't have a tutor, so perhaps I'm not the best person to comment of this).

Good luck.
