Eleven Plus Pain

“It will be all right on the day.”

“If the wind blows from the right quarter she should pass her eleven plus.”

What about the old adage: “A pilot flies by the seat of his pants.”

Space Scientist Dr Hubert Stughold wanted to test this theory. He injected his buttocks with anaesthetic novocaine until his posterior was numb.

He hitched a ride with a pilot who specialised in acrobatics. The pilot offered a full range of flying tricks.

Dr Stughold returned to earth feeling rather ill. He went on to maintain that a pilot’s pants are a most valuable tool.”

Health warning: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. It would be a sad day for the history of eleven plus preparation if a parent tried a similar experiment to see if they could encourage their child to sit still during the course of an eleven plus paper.

It probably will be all right on the day of your child does the right amount of preparation.
