    Why do you consider yourself a failure and her a success?

    Strange OP and misguided. Surely the non-malicious choice is that you pass your 11+.

    Is it too late to redeem yourself?

    I kind of know what you mean though, I have a sister who did quite well.

    i left school to do a job i hated (born and lived in west Yorkshire ) ended up on anti depressants and long term unemployed and a drunk .should have left that job when i knew i loathed it instead of just carrying on and done something i enjoyed
    pulled things around since then though but not until i was well on my way to 40

    the fact you have a mortgage and not paying someone elses via rent is positive ,all we did (with rubbish jobs ,tax credits) was plough every spare penny into overpaying mortgage ,did it in under 10 years ,sold and moved to somewhere amazing with the cash ,Boom

    You seem to be a bitter person who blames others for your own downfall, your sister took the chances she got, you didn't. You don't even remember why you didn't pass.

    You probably didn't pass because you didn't care and possibly thought somehow, someone, maybe parents, will sort it all out for you.

    Life is not easy but blaming others doesn't help but shows your own ignorance.

    You have a home, that is an achievement. Stop comparing yourself to others and be content with what you have, a lot of people will envy to be in your situation.
