Yup, it's an indication of how old you are
The purpose of the exam in my school was determine what level you were at and what class you should be placed in to. I would imagine the same questions come up every year and by giving her an advantage compared to others it could inflate her scores and put her in to a class where she won't get the necessary attention.
Just let her do the exam and see what class she falls into. Around Christmas time in first year the classes were re-arranged anyway to take account for those who might have had a bad exam day anyway.
Gah I hate this mentality of trying to prepare kids for utterly pointless exams such as entrance exams. I hope we don't end up like it is in the UK where there are grind schools for 11 year olds to make them exam ready.
I remember the teacher gave us out sample papers and the Irish paper i got off him was the exact one that appeared for the entrance exam pity i never studied it properly oh well long time ago .
Entrance exams really are nothing to worry about, nothing that you would need to "brush" up on or revise for, just a very general test. I remember freaking out when it was coming up to doing mine (and it was on a saturday) but i soon realised its nothing to worry about and once your in there, its grand
"The cat lives in the box - Where does the cat live?"
Was a question on my secondary schools entrance exam.
You have to repeat Secondary and any subsequent further education AFAIK
test doesnt matter that much really but the amount of cheating that went on when i was doing it was unbelievable
I was ****ting myself going into that exam hah.
Who studies for an entrance exam?
Tell her to go play in the
An eleven/twelve year old shouldn't be worrying about exams.
And seeing that she is the type to get worked up over this I think she'll do juuuust fine.
(By juuuuust fine, I mean very well!)
Isn't the above the point? Its an assessment of their current abilities with xyz, not what they have studied for over the last few days. Seriously, they'll do enough of that with the Junior and Leaving cert.
Yes. But unfortunately, its too late for you now Frada. Better just give up trying now.
The year I was going into 1st the two secondary schools in my town decided not to give itt see how it turned out,th year after the re-introduced it
so you know somones who is entering secondary school...and you want them to cheat on a small assesment.
unless the person is intellectually disabled or really really stupid......i dont see the point
you choose your subjects and level....it dosnt go by who did the best on the crap assesment test
