I was asked today about time. “How do I help my child with time in the examination?”
This is a remarkably difficult question to answer. Time wears many hats and for many of us the eleven plus develops into a race against time.
It is high time that you wear your watch when you are working through eleven plus papers.
If you are not careful you may ruin out of time. Time waits for no man (or any eleven plus child).
I have told you more times than I have had hot dinners that keeping time in the examination is simply a question of managing time. “If you do not use time wisely, you may lose it!”
You may find that time is running out in the examination. Try the obvious answers.
If you are pressed for time then try to keep calm. It is no good panicking.
You may find the right answer in the nick of time. Keep trying. Do not give up.
It is just a matter of time before your tummy wobbles silence themselves – and you should start enjoying the examination.
You may find that you have to make time during the examination.
And finally – in the fullness of time your hard eleven plus work should pay off.
