Hello everyone I'm new to this board but just wanted to ask if there's any last minute advice to help with comprehension. It's DD's weakest area. Tried to address the issue but she's not an avid reader and I think that's really the key to success. So in the absence of getting her to read non-stop (!) a week before the test- any tips? Thank you!

My suggestion would be (between I have similar challenges :wink: ) :

Thinking and going through the techniques that works for her and amending where necessary - Speed/Understanding/Inferences/Plot(what/where/who/why ..etc) , simple annotation for bigger comprehensions (if she had to refer back) or what ever works for her.

Then doing 1 or 2 exercises per day , applying these techniques and amending based on what works for it - Suggest medium size but at the complexity level expected for 11 plus - CGP paper exercise ? Hardly 10-15 min per each one.

The real value would be going through with her - each line and discussing her understanding against what was asked / answered but also any new vocab ..etc. And finally reassuring that she will be alright.

My 2 pence :roll:
