I'm sure that there is a thread somewhere discussing whether different areas' standardisation is against the actual cohort which took the exam or a national 'test' cohort, but in the normal way of things,

- c.68% of candidates will fall between a standardised score of 85 and 115.
- the other c.32% will be split between (less than 85) and (greater than 115).

So, with a pass score of ?110, the expected percentage passing would be 16% (those scoring >115), plus a proportion of the 34% (the half of the middle 68% whose scores are above 100) with scores between 110 and 115. They are on the 'downward slope' of the distribution curve, so will be less than a direct third of the 34%.

So 32% seems quite good, really :)

The pass mark for Reading and Kendrick is 110 and Slough schools is 111, so that % is likely to be the same as any other year for the reasons Toadmum as explained.

Maths is not my forte, but according to the information I got from CEM at Durham (posted on another thread) 321 passed the Kendrick exam out of a cohort of 1250 candidates.
That appears to be about 26% passing with a score of +> 110
There was another posting on the Reading Boys exam cohort but i do not have that to hand
