Are there any personality traits that will help an eleven plus child to do better in the actual examination?
Easy-going, warm and generous
Inflexible, cold, timid and shy
Frivolous, treats the examination as if it is a joke
Evasive emotionally changeable
At times, thank goodness, it is likely that an eleven plus child will be any or all of the above. We certainly don’t want an eleven plus child who is so ambitious and eager to pass the examination that he or she starts living in an eleven plus bubble.
