My DD is taking the 11+ in 3 weeks - preparation is going well for Maths and VR, however, she is a very slow reader. The comprehension is multiple choice, and typically is pretty long. Working on the GL assessment pack 2, she takes about 15+ minutes to read the text, which is far too long. If the text is interesting, she is quicker and has very good recall, however, if she doesn't get into the text then she is very slow and really stuggles to understand it
It is a bit of surprise as she is at Level 5 in school for comprehension.
I am thinking that the best strategy is to do the other questions first before tackling the comprehension, if she doesn't do this I am worried that she will miss easy marks as she will have wasted too much time on the comprehension. I am thinking that the best way to do the comprehension is to read the first question, then read the text until she can answer it, at least in this way if she doesn't get to the end then she won't have missed too many questions
Anyone with similar experience?
