Hi all, I'm posting this here as our regional forum is very quiet
I have read a ton of posts about the calculation of standardised scores and where that may or may not put you on the list but, I'll admit, it's all Greek to me! I'm hoping someone here who understands how it works will be able to look at some numbers and give their considered opinion?
My son took the test for Bournemouth School. Based on previous years, I estimate approx 500 boys took the test.
The papers were English, Verbal Reasoning and Maths GL papers.
This is what the letter from the school says:
The scores have been standardised, taking into account any age weighting. All papers have a range between 69 and 141 marks. The average score for each test was 100. Overall required Standard = 294
Bournemouth School has 150 places. The top 120 scores get a place automatically, the following 30 get allocated in the usual way. (Score, distance from school etc).
My son scored a 341 OOC - what chance does he have of being in the top 120 do you think?
I hope you don't mind me asking for some kind soul to help, I've been trying to figure it out for myself and I think I've broken my brain!
