We have discussed it with her and she is keen to do the exam. She finds her friends in her year group little immature and she has a lot of friends in the year above. I do have concerns regarding emotionally is she ready?
I am living in fear that we will get to year 6 and her rebeling! She neither likes nor dislikes school. She doesn't see the point in going most days but at the moment goes without too much moaning!
In maths and English she is at least a year ahead of her age and has quickly learnt to not draw attention to herself!
Does anybody have a child that has gone a year early?
Thanks in advance
I am sure there are some around who have gone a year early ... they will pop up soon no doubt. The other thread referred to got a bit heated and was removed..
It is difficult to assess whether a child is ready to take the 11 plus early - I would have thought that they might need to be a couple of years ahead of the mean for their age .. many of the kids going to GS are at that stage and you don;t want to be in the situation of her not getting through in year 5 and then not being able to take the test in year 6 when others at school will be able to do so.
