Subject: Son nervous about 8th grade placement test/HELP!
Hi! I have been homeschooling my 13 year old since 1st grade and next week he will be going to a private school. He has to take a placement test and is so nervous that he is going to fail and have to go back to 7th grade. He wants to study but I am not sure what he needs to study. Could someone please tell us what kinds of questions will be on the test? I called the school and they told me not to worry that it is just basic but I want to know what kind of basic question. For example, will math be addition, subtraction long division, multiplication, fractions etc. Or will they be algebra, decimals, geometry and word problems? Could someone help? I think he would feel much more comfortable if he would be able to study and feel more prepared. I just recently had to take him to get updated on his shots to be excepted into the school and he was so nervous he fainted. I worry about him fainting during the test. Thanks in advance! Michelle
