Just looking for some advice after being devastated by the news that DD failed her 11+ by scoring 120. So near, but yet so far!
So, now im considering what to do next. To be honest I think we were both slightly complacent, and I really didnt expect her to fail. I dont think she did either.
We just moved to the area this year. DD was devastated to leave her old school and friends, however due to work commitments on my part, we really had no choice. The move unsettled her, and I feel she is just starting to settle now. 4 weeks before the exam, my daughter, my son and I were involved in a road traffic accident in which I was injured. The week of the exam, my sister was admitted to hospital and delivered her baby prematurely. Again, my daughter was anxious and concerned about this.
During the first week in her new school she scored 118 in VR CAT. A few months later her score was 124. She passed both the 11+ practice papers in school the week before the exam with over 90%. She is predicted level 5's. She is in the middle set of her class (5 children being above her) and the teacher states she manages very comfortably there. My main concern is her second 11+ score of 114 (ouch!)
She is hard working, enthusiastic and ambitious. She has her heart set on our local grammar.
I am at a loose end. I dont know what to do for the best. One point seems so small, but is causing so much dissapointment!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as we are new to the area and I am not familiar with the appeal process.
Thank you in advance!
