Which schools are you trying for as the exams do vary in subjects and techniques?
Has your dc had any practice of 11+ eg Bond books or are you just starting off?
Yes, he has been doing NFER/Bond papers for about one week and his score is average at the moment but lots of room to improve. My dc is good at English and Maths but not very good at timing...
Thank for you reply.
Certainly not impossible nor too late if your DC is bright enough. I am a big fan of this forum but if I'd found it earlier than I did (which was about a month before my DD sat the tests) I would have freaked out at the amount of tutoring some children get & begged Herts CC to let me change my preferences!
If your DC is in top sets, had 3 level 5s in Year 5, & is willing to practice for some familiarisation, you stand a chance.
Thanks for your encouraging comment. Yes, this forum is certainly helpful, along with it's knowledgeable members. My dc is quite bright and says he will attempt the exams. I've also made it clear that it will be very challenging and his chances are very low but at least he'd have had the experience.
