 Post subject: Bucks 11+ Maths and VR?
PostPosted: Fri Jul 08, 2011 6:16 am 
I really think that Bucks Education Dept should really think about changing this 11+ system. I feel there should be two papers, one VR and one Maths. My DS is very good at Maths but not so at VR. I have been told by numerous people she is grammar school material, I know this myself. However, I think the Vocabulary will let her down. Is this a strong enough reason at a selection appeal?

Yes, it's possible, but it would help to have some strong evidence (e.g. 5a prediction for maths, 130+ score in NVR or quantitative reasoning).

Bear in mind too that, the further away from 121, the harder it usually becomes to win an appeal, whatever the reasons.

Example of a case, where maths was one of the issues, can be found here:
