Information from Marling is that 360 boys either sat the test there or registered to share their scores with them. Of those 360 the qualifying score of 216 was reached by 225.
What I dont know and couldnt find out is what percentage or number of these did sit at other schools so were more likely to go to them.
Still, evry little helps I guess.
I think that as 250 took at STRS and probably the same amount of boys at Pates ( if you took half the total as boys). It is probably a good generalisation to guess that the same amount were at the other two schools. We know that a lot of parents tick more than one school (it would be good to find out percentages here). Therefore I think it would be safe to say that a lot of Tommies places will not be taken up by those whose preference is other schools and who qualified for them. The big question is how many and will this leave spaces (albeit on appeal) for the nearly made its. It would only take about 40 boys who passed for STRS to decide to take up places at each
of the other three schools. (Am I niaive in thinking this might happen) My son was 1 off for Tommies so I think it may still be possible to get in on appeal from what I have read. All this number crunching - not sure I'd get in and I'm a teacher!
