Hope all your DCs came out feeling positive. Saw a few tears at SHS but mostly happy faces.
Hope your DCs felt good after.
Fingers crossed for you all.

My DD came out relaxed but said it was a hard test. She also can’t remember anything about it! Hope all works out in the end.

Don't mention any details as there will be students doing the same paper on the backup date.

Your dc will lose out if you share details that will help the late sitters. DG

I might add that dd1 said very similar 3 years ago - like the practice books, maybe a bit easier. She got into SHS in top 150.

My son came out saying the first paper was really hard but the second one was fine. Just wondering if anyone else got a similar response when they asked their child??

Feel so bad for those that found it upsetting.

Interestingly mine said the opposite, found second much harder than first.

I think it very much depends on their strengths. If NVR is your weakest point then the paper with more/all of that in will feel harder to you. So very hard to tell anything from that
