Just wondering how they've done? and how we should break the news to them of their results.

Our yr 6s have had results back from one grammar (well the girls adn the boys which are separate).

Not had 11+ back yet (which is now only for one of the grammars).

How did yours do solo?

How did it go? It's such a stressful time - been there 3 times and 4th time a way off but helped out a few children with VR/NVR this year. In our area they get results this year before applying to schools. It will be interesting to see how it goes...

Hi yes, he passed. I'm very proud of him, especially as he had bad tonsilitis when he sat the tests grin. He wasn't coached either, so he did it well and under his own steam so to speak. He still has the results to come from Kent yet ~ next week. Don't know about those, he said he doubts he's passed. We'll see. I'm still as proud as punch of him.

I hope everyone else's Dc's have good results too.

Mine are not sitting it for a few years yet! I just know other parents at school with children who have just had results.

That seems so early! Ours don't sit it till end of november and remember a few years ago it wasn't till January. THe results are not released until the school place offers come out in March so a very long time to wait.

Too early for here too. He sits his October and November - three exams for 4 schools. We wont know reults until next year either.

Our area has changed it around this year. You don't have to put your choices in until after the test results are through ~ which is a far more sensible way of doing it. It saves you wasting your CAF choices on schools that your child may not be eligible to go to anyway.

results for one school out here, our local school results are out in November, which is after the final date for applications. But the LEA has a system whereby no school will know which place you put them on the application form, so not really a problem. We won't know which school til March tho, so regardless of whether they pass or fail, it will be a long wait.

Yes, March 2nd here too...

March 2nd in essex, I really wish they did it so that you knew your childs 11-plus results before you chose your secondary schools, so if your child didn't do that well you dont waste your choices.

I have set up a new website called www.schooltalkuk.com mainly because we spent so much time talking about all these difficult school decsions, I thought it would give parents a place to discuss these toics on a site dedicated to schools.
So please feel free to pay us a visit and help get things rolling, thanks hope to see you there, Sam xgrin

Essex, they changed it to do that in this area this year, so in that respect we are lucky. Unfortunately, the different areas let you see the schools at different times to suit their own CAF deadlines. Today I found out Ds has passed the Kent tests too, but won't see the Kent schools until Weds/Thurs nights, then have to get CAF in by Friday...Not enough time!
