Eleven Plus Pressures

Is it possible that very bright children have more pressures on them than less able children?

The bright child may have a wider range of opportunities.

The bright child may be able to analyse a wide variety of data efficiently.

The bright child may be able arrive at a thought out and rational decision.

The bright child may be prepared to discuss and listen – rather than argue.

Some bright children may respond to stimulation and go on to act in a responsible manner.

Most children, who `get through’ the eleven plus, are regarded as bright. Other children, however, who may not be as able, may be more proficient at passing examinations.
