I know every child is different and you know your child best but i thought that last year that my son wouldn't cope and when he bought his envelope home and gave it to me i was a nervous wreck. Although predicted 131 - 141 by the school he fell short (116). I tried not to cry as i told him he had done very well but unfortunately had not quite made it - his reply? Oh well i did my best can i go and play the playstation now? - off he went leaving me in a state of shock
We do have a happy ending however as we got through on appeal (the worst 2 months of my life) and my son has settled in well but had he not been succesfull i'm sure he would have been happy with the local comp - the moral being that what is in that envelope is NOT the be all and end all and he (and you!) will cope.
