Thanks for your reply, my daughter sat the exam last Saturday, without tution......we did lots of online practise papers, and she nailed the VR down to a fine art! She has always been it top set for both Maths and Literacy, and got 5b/c in her sats in Year 5.
It seems bizare to me to think that some kids would of had 2 years coaching for this exam, when all we really did was a couple of months pratise papers.
Ok so maybe now I am thinking she wont get in because of all the extra tuition most of the kids would of had.
It just crossed my mind that if you need 2 years of coaching....is Grammer School the right place to be?
I know for sure that dd younger has no intention of going to grammer school....he is bright but not as bright as his sister...and there is no way I would put him through that much pressure!
But I guess we are lucky down here as we have really outstanding Comps.
Sorry to go on!
