CEM and GL Examinations

Around the time your child will be completing last minute revision the Notting Hill Carnival will be taking place. Many books and articles on `How to Study’ suggest that  cramming up to the last minute does not really work. There must be the occasional break for a little self- indulgence.

Seeing a troop of armed and excited soldiers advancing is always an exciting. The word `troop’ was often used for a group of cavalry soldiers . Your child may drop his or her Eleven Plus book in anticipation if this troop was on horseback!

The CEM and GL examinations are different – but elements are remarkably similar. After all a percentage is a percentage and an `Odd One Out’ is an `Odd One Out. Some children will be writing both styles of paper. We wish them well. 

And if your child should feel tired then offer the immortal words: “You brave little trooper!”
