The forum in Bucks has gone very quiet.
From past experience this feels very much like the "calm before the storm."
.... we'll start playing "I spy" or something like that to pass the time
....something beginning with P!
Will the passing score remain the same under CEM as before. I thought that there maybe a new passing score to go along with the new system.
Yes, the qualifying score is still 121 but I'm sure I read somewhere that the range
of standardised scores is much wider than the previous 69 - 141. Can't find any more info at present, though.
Edited to add - just found clarification in another thread (thanks, Sanna!) that the score range will be 40 to 180+.
... things have a knack of turning out for the best even if they don't seem great at the time....
Precisely what I was telling my DD as she waited for the bus this morning! The example I used was that her big sis didn't get her university place first time around, and was very upset but used the extra year to qualify as a lifeguard and gain experience. Big sis now has a part-time job working at the uni pool, doing something she enjoys and
helping to pay her way, which wouldn't have been the case if she'd gone straight from school. DD just said that a lot of her friends are going to the comp so she wouldn't mind if that's how it works out. I hope she feels the same on Friday if it's bad news!
