In previous years I have started these threads to help and support all those parents involved in the independent school admissions process.

I wasn't going to start one this year as I know I would not be able to check back on it as regularly as I would like, which then defeats the purpose of the thread.

However, after numerous positive PM's about the threads I think it would be a shame not to start one where at least the hand holding can continue. flowers

There are many many people who have been through the process and 'live to tell the tale' . There are also other tutors I know who read this thread and it would be great if you all could help and support and share your ideas.

No one ever shares ideas on these threads.

Good luck to all those sitting assessments this week.

After the spat last year, no-one else started a thread either. No point in setting yourself up for a kicking.

And although there have been some posts from those doing these assessments scattered around other threads, and some people have answered, I don't think there is any sense of mutual support his year. And it's so late on in the process that I don't think it'll happen now.

Was I the only person thinking this thread was about BODMAS?

mumteacher, would you have any advice for second round for 4+ at NLCS and Habs?

mumteacher Fri 08-Jan-16 15:20:31

I set up these threads each and yes each year there are those with differing opinions on the subject .... And well rightful so as everyone is entitled.

Happy to take a "kicking" if it means helping others in the process x

Thank you very much.

Was it email notification or post?

t1n333 Sat 09-Jan-16 12:10:26

Did you hear by email Mask235?

Mask235 Sat 09-Jan-16 14:30:37

No we got a call as none of the dates they mentioned were suitable because of a family tragedy.

mumteacher Sun 10-Jan-16 22:18:22

Mask235 thanks for your pm hope the info was helpful

mumteacher Sun 10-Jan-16 22:18:53

Nlcs results should be out tomorrow.
Good luck to all those waiting.

Bigbiscuits Mon 11-Jan-16 06:30:03

Ah. So all information is traded by PM grin

dollyphillips Mon 11-Jan-16 09:06:49

Mumteacher - I for one appreciate these threads. The 4+ is clouded in so much secrecy that it is ridiculous.

We are also awaiting 2nd round notification for NLCS and Channing. Any information you can offer in the second round would be v v much appreciated. We are also off to St Albans Girls today.

Thanks so much.

mumteacher Mon 11-Jan-16 10:53:46

Biscuit are you a tutor? I remember someone with a similar name a few years back who was. Wondering if your the same. Do you have Chn sitting any assessments?

Not that an explanation is warranted nonetheless just for you biscuit - I saw mask's pm before her message on the thread so answered her query by pm.

mumteacher Mon 11-Jan-16 10:55:31

You're *

strawberryfields973 Mon 11-Jan-16 11:20:50

mumteacher, would you be able to share your advice that you gave to Mask235 here.

Has anyone else heard yet?

denxiao Mon 11-Jan-16 11:29:18

No, still waiting.

dollyphillips Mon 11-Jan-16 12:41:26

We are also still waiting. Am I right in thinking it will be by email whether a yes or a no?

denxiao Mon 11-Jan-16 12:46:05

I guess so, by email. It said "by email" in the letter. Also I remember I received a testing email in November, to make sure they have got the correct email address. Nothing yet, still waiting.
