feeling really low about dd and her chances.
ds is at Marling, we DIYed and it was fine. I always thought dd was more academic, she is a high achiever at her school, and has high NC levels wins maths prizes etc.
So we have worked over the last 6 months on the CEM materials, with no real problems, she can do all the maths and knows all the grammar etc, but she is so SLOW.
But she just constantly scores low in any test I give her. Mostly this is due to not being able to get through enough questions.
We have been doing daily work this week and last, with lots of timed short papers etc, and very, very slowly she is picking up speed and improving over things like making a sensible guesses and moving on.
But in the English paper she did she got every single vocab question wrong. I am tearing my hair out.
I sat down with dh this evening and said we really have to face up to the fact she probably isn't going to pass, and how to manage that, and her disappointment.
Ds is going to be an absolute cow to her is she doesn't pass, despite the fact he did the VR exam which to me was so much easier.
feel pretty low
