Thanks for the reply.
Spent time with the head this morning. In the end he weighted it based mainly on the practice tests. He had sought clear advice, but didnt receive any. So different heads will submit based on differing criterea
This then benefits the children who have been coached prior to these tests in my opinion as they prepared. Children having their first look will suffer.
In my case, the NFER test doesnt seem to be my daughters strength and based on the practice tests has affected her suitability rating - still in the top 20 though.
His actual appeal recomendation rates her higher than most of the appeal students rated higher in the suitability rating. Only one got a stronger recomendation. Which being biased made sense.
Might be worth parents checking with their head if they are concerned about their own suitability rating.
