Both DDs started their tutoring from November. That was long enough for both of them! Both started as 1 to 1 then swiftly matched up with a similar leveled partner. Having a partner was really good in stimulating each other, I think. With DD1, I had no idea about the 11 plus and largely left with the tutor and the homework the tutor assigned but with DD2, we had wised up to it and sat with her going through any mistakes she made on her homeworks and utilised the 10 minutes workbook pretty regularly (particularly during the summer holiday every day for 10 minutes each for her weaker subjects at least). We always encouraged reading good books though as vocabs are something we thought impossible to teach! DD1 scraped into Ribston and DD2 top 150 for three schools so we did better at the second time around. Good luck!!

We will be sitting the 2019 test - feel at a distinct disadvantage as it's our first time. Don't really know what we should be concentrating on as I've read it's literacy-heavy. Would appreciate any top tips, work book recommendations, things you have learnt from doing it once or twice already, things you wish you had done different etc! Currently we have a tutor and trying to DIY it as well but concerned about peaking too soon!

Had parents evening this week and in greater depth across the board, so feeling confident with that. Now trying to work out what won't be covered at school and the teacher recommended concentrating on exam technique.

We're just mostly relying on the tutor for now and will probably try to add in a little bit of noticeable DIY after christmas as also don't want to peak too soon, or over do it.
