Why can’t the authors of the `Real Eleven Plus Mathematics Tests’ follow the National Curriculum?
A whole lot of time and effort has gone into the National Curriculum – especially in mathematics. It seems that the authors are mightily pretentious to insist that their syllabus is the only one for an eleven plus child to follow. We have all had to follow the same route so that our children are not disadvantaged.
One amazing advantage would be that teachers in schools would be able to pay a much larger part in the eleven plus process. Imagine giving an inspired school teacher a much greater opportunity to contribute towards the outcome of the eleven plus.
