PostPosted: Thu Dec 06, 2007 2:07 pm 
My son did not pass.....he got a very low score he did find the paper difficult he preferred the Slough paper....he did his best.....if he doesn't get through the Slough paper either I'm still quite happy as our local school is still very good.

Sorry to hear your son did not pass...
Generally, I think the 11 plus exam system is rather a very poor way of determining a childs true potential. I have heard from teachers at primary school that they see large variations when the results come out ... whereby children doing really good at school may not necessarily pass the exam and those who have only trained for the exam may pass but not do as well in a grammar school.
In addition to the exams, I believe that the Grammar selection process should have some element of a childs performance at school.
Don't forget that they are only children and it mainly depends on how they feel on the Day of the Exam.
Hope he goes a long way in the future.

Hi reena... sorry to hear that your daughter did not qualify. On an open day I was told that for appeal the panel are looking for predicted Sats of 555 or 554. But I would suggest that you would have to supply good academic evidence and headteacher support. Slough appeals are not as transparent as Bucks so there is far less knowledge to go on.
