Hi again Stmichaelsfan,
We did some mocks prior to the tests, and I presume that your dd is sitting some of these tests as a form of mock exam for the real thing since you are out of catchment?
Are the important exams (presumably North London consortium 1&2 and Habsgirls) after at least some of the others? I think that there are two points to make about sitting numerous exams. One: if your dd feels an exam has gone badly it could impact on any other test being sat quickly afterwards (either making her despondent or determined), and two: there are lots of viruses around during the 11+ exam period and the stress of sitting exams can cause children to become run-down/sick.
My dd was ill in the afternoon session at St Michael's test with a headache which heralded the start of a chest infection.She missed out the last 10 questions in her VR exam. We were all devastated by it and despite knowing that she would have done very well in the NVR and Maths and OK in English were afraid it had lost her a place (it hadn't
). She was ill over the weekend and so in the end we delayed the second round of the Latymer test for a week after obtaining a doctor's certificate and antibiotics. One of her friends was also ill with the same virus and they were both less than perfect when they sat the Latymer test, though both did well. I suppose the point is that a decent gap between exams would be desirable, or the most important ones to came later.
BTW we spent some of the time that week working through Habs Boys maths tests (the closest to Latymer ones) which are available on their website as downloadable papers. They also have free English papers which were very good. If the Habs Girls exam is similar it's worth going through them, as they have a 'house style'.
