Thank you for your reply. I think that might be what i am experiencing with DC. The problem is that previously when we started i would say up to December/January he was eager/motivated and want to do the work, but now he is sluggish lacks motivation and something he could have completed in good timing and most likely all correct now takes him forever and get quite a lot wrong. My worry is if we take it easy he might fall behind.
Mystery, thanks i hope you are right that he will hopefully peak again closer to the time. A parent also mention this to me and has been playing on my mind. 'conspiracy theorist of Kent'
'I don't want to peak too soon in case I wear knees out before I'm 90 (I'm 80)'
