My question is will things like this help parents in appeals?
It won't, you could score 99.9% average at Kendrick but they won't give you a place if they've already filled the 96 slots
Yes, as we were in the afternoon queue at Kendrick, there were morning girls coming up to their friends telling them the test was 'easy'. This is the first time I've ever seen this at Kendrick, I always thought it's very well organised.
Either way it didn't worry us one little bit if were am or pm or whatever anybody else was saying or hearing. In our experience those who say it was easy find out it wasn't so easy on results day and if anybody ever told us about any test content we would just disregard it anyway.
Some bits in that article are ridiculous, I don't think people are that desperate!
Btw, congrats to the Reading girl that had the amazing score at Walsall. I hope you get Kendrick as your first choice and its a shame CEM didn't use the first raw score to standardise for your other sittings
