DS sat the test at Marling. We were both soooo nervous this morning! Relieved it is now over!
He came out a bit subdued and said he was very tired. He found the maths hard but at least he got an answer down for everything. Now we play the waiting game and try to take our minds off it in the meantime...
Any success stories from previous years where pupils found the test hard but still did well??
Yes. My DS came out saying he had only answered a few questions and wasn't at all confident with those and, that a boy had broken down in tears which had disturbed him. He said it was awful. I read on the forum all of the stories of other peoples' ds who found it quite easy. I then spent months assuming he hadn't passed. He's in year 8 at Tommies now!
Stay strong. There is such a build-up that their feelings and thought processes are all over the place after the exam and they can go into overload. The fact that your ds put an answer for everything is a very good sign.
