I know it doesn't help to try and second guess what the results will be but it's become my secret obsession! :oops:
Can any of the experts tell me just how consistent the average raw score pass mark has been over the past few years? If my May born was getting 73 & 75 on familiarisation and felt she did exactly the same on the actual tests, what are the chances that after standardisation she would get more or less than 121?
I know there's only a couple of days (and 7 hours and 15 minutes...) till I know, but please can someone humour me?

There has unsurprisingly been a great deal of discussion about this over the years, and some conversations earlier this year came close to nailing the actual raw score required to qualify. I won't refer you to the various threads because you will probably be left feeling confused, but a search for terms such as "raw score", "standardised score" and "FOI" will pick up most of them.

Through FOI requests we established that the qualifying mark for a September-born child last year was 71/80. That appears to have been slightly higher than in previous years, when 69/80 or 70/80 might have sufficed.

A couple of days, 7 hours and 8 minutes ...

How about a nice gin and tonic?

Thinking of you all, I was doing this this time last year and will be doing it again next year.

Ohhhhh !!!! The school knows the results now. It is good that I cancelled the appointment I had with the head today. I can’t face anyone let alone the head.

It is so scary.....

What was the alternative on offer? Is this a Bucks state school or a private or OoC school?

PM me if you prefer to.
