My daughter got her 1st choice school starting in September and during her summer holidays last year she did 6 papers a day.
Someone said that there are not enough papers to do able to do 6 papers a day. Well My daughter did 10 a day and when the exams drew nearer we covered 24 papers a day. she got her first choice. She is happy about her school. I have no regrets and I'll do it over again.
there are so many holidays to come. she only gave up one set for the 11+
There are obviously some sad parents around. These girls may well be going to their first choice school but do these schools really want children that have had so much preparation? Will the child be happy there when she meets children that were offered a place on the basis they were really bright and needed very little prep? I would have thought within a few weeks it will be evident to the over prepared child that they are lagging behind. How will the child cope then? Children become adults and remember their relationships with their parents.
