Posted once last year and got some great replies.
I have viewed this forum now and again and there are some fab people on here giving excellent advice.
Just curious I suppose to see how other people are feeling now that there is a little over 6 months to go...gulp.
I remember thinking a while ago....it's fine, there's over 18 months to go...ha...how time flies.
I personally think that my daughter has a reasonable chance of getting it...well at least I hope so! She is very unconcerned about the whole thing (she's 9 still so fair do to her!) at the moment and I hope she remains calmer than her mother...
Gone down the tutoring route (reluctantly and courtesy of grandparents) which amounts to one hour a week. Started in Jan this year and I think it is serving her well thus far. However, did a timed maths paper recently given by the tutor (past paper I believe) and got 17 out of 34. Not terrible, but not great either. Not sure though what I am expecting from her at this stage. I think some of the questions threw her as she hasn't covered the stuff at school yet. Some of the easier ones she got wrong and the more complicated ones she got correct!! Sigh. Anyway, I did mention last year that she had sat her CATS (not SATS as I think some people mis-read) and got 121. Did them this year too and got 122 which I think shows reasonable ability. Her teacher thinks she should definitely try for the 11+.
Well, if anyone has any advice of ANY kind or would like to chat and try and keep me sane....I'd be very grateful.
