Hi Everyone

The Bucks results are less than 24 hours away now, and I know how nerve-racking that is from personal experience. Please may I advise/remind you of a few points?

- Children at Bucks state schools and Partner Schools (in and out of county) will receive their results by pupil post at the end of the school day.

- Please do not open the envelope while you are on school premises. The sight of children and parents alternately whooping and wailing is a very unedifying one.

- Out of County children's results are posted first class on Thursday, in the fervent hope that they will arrive on Friday.

- If the letter does not arrive on Friday, there is no point in calling Bucks CC Admissions. They will not disclose results over the phone under any circumstances. You just have to sit it out, and register the absence of a letter with them after your post arrives on Monday.

- They will inform you as to when a replacement letter might be sent, but I am glad to say that the non-arrival of results beyond three postal deliveries is as rare as hens' teeth. It is usually the Royal Mail who let you down.

- The flat qualifying mark will be 121, as it has been for time immemorial. All children achieving 121 or more are eligible for a place at a Bucks grammar school, depending upon the remaining admissions criteria for their preferred school, none of which involve scores at 11+.

- For that reason, PLEASE DO NOT POST SCORES ABOVE 121 ON THE FORUM!

- There is no need to do so, it is simply boasting and it can be upsetting to those who have not been successful. Any such posts will be edited/removed.

- If your child has scored 121 or more, you can see past Allocation Profiles for each grammar school here to allow you to assess your chances of being offered a place.

- Finally, please show sensitivity towards those who have not received the results they hoped for.

- If you are among them, Etienne's advice below is your starting point, and we will all support you to the best of our ability.

The very best of luck to everyone waiting for the results! :)

Hope you won't need our help, but we will be available if you should need assistance with reviews/appeals.
Please do some reading first of all, before asking questions on the forum.
Start here.

See also this thread.

For some words of encouragement from those who have been through the experience of non-qualification in the 11+ (as well as an unsuccessful appeal),
see here.


Please feel free to post your results on this thread as they arrive, and my best wishes for Friday to you all, and especially to your DC.

Sally-Anne

This thread is intended to be for discussion of actual results, so I have moved a few posts of the "gosh, it's nerve-racking" variety to this thread viewtopic.php?f=12&t=43919&start=30

Just received our mail, DS qualified :) . But we are out of catchment, so not sure finally how it will work out. Will need to look at past profiles.
Thanks for all the support.
