Can't believe I'm starting another appeal thread. Ds1 is the one child of my four I would said most likely to pass but there we go.

No extenuatings alas, but v high academic ability. Think we have to give it a go but am very unsure how the new system will pan out.

Anyone else in Bucks up for some joint hand-holding?

If it isn't too painful, how did you go with numbers one and two? What were the standardised scores? Thanks

Good evening everyone.

I am so sorry to hear about your disappointment. Please don't despair - Etienne and I will do all we can to guide you through the review process and/or the appeal process.

As this is more of a "chat thread", I will move it to Bucks where it can benefit a wider audience and provide you with more hand-holding than you will get on Appeals.

If you decide to go ahead with a review or appeal you can then start your own individual case files on the Appeals section.

Fasten your seatbelts for the move. :wink:

Indeed, but just the one rather than three. :wink:

Choose a meaningful title and then please stick to putting all your information on that thread. Although other people may, of course, post on it, it is usually a two-way conversation between you and those offering advice relevant to your appeal, rather than a place for multiple people to chat.

I was successful with the first 2 appeals my son scored 117 and my daughter 113. This time round 118 and 112 and i don't really have any circumstances at all and it's worrying me that I won't be able to fight my case face to face.

Quote:
One obvious difference is that a Selection Review Panel will normally expect there to be strong evidence of both high academic ability and exceptional reasons for underperformance in the tests. This does not apply to an appeal – in fact, there is no mention of extenuating circumstances in the Appeals Code. At an appeal parents could still refer to any relevant extenuating circumstances if they wanted to, but the focus would be almost entirely on academic evidence (plus reasons for wanting a place at the school being appealed for).
