As the results day looms, I am trying to come up with any logical argument to cling on to, to keep hoping.
Our situation was, despite all the best will in the world, we couldn't do much prep at home and had to spend all of the Easter break with no work.
At the time my DD did the QMGS exam, we just went in without any exam mindset, more so because we knew it was a practise run. DD hadn't done any papers by then.
However, during the 9weeks of summer, I and DD worked very efficiently, and I could see the big jump she took in performance, both in the practice papers at home and the subsequent work that she is now doing in her class in Year 6. She has gone ahead of all of the top of the class peers, moved from top of the middle set to the top set and it has boosted her confidence significantly. It is really rewarding to see this.
Logic tells me that, because she scored ok in QMGS, and she did significantly more targetted prep in summer, her KE score might be better than this. But then, logic also tells me that this might be the same for a lot of the children who also did QMGS as a prep run...
Has anyone else been in our situation and saw that major improvement in scores between the two exams?
