Use the function "eval-string" for that, or the functions
For instance, (eval-string (string-append "(begin "
                                          "(define t 6) (+ t 6)"
Or,e even
    (eval (read-from-string "(begin (define t 6) (+ t 6))"))

Eval-string, as eval, accepts also an optional environment as second

Note that I have added the begin form around your string to be sure to
have only one result to compute.
