I remember commenting on this way of selecting a while ago and not being happy about it. Am even more shocked that DS is in now as when younger they had to fix the weekly Sunday school raffle because the poor thing never ever won yet his brother won constantly.
Gloucestershire 11+ is truly a lottery how ridiculous is that!
Had a feeling 215 was the lowest. I know a couple of years ago 8 boys had the same mark so they let all 8 in. Seems fairer to me. Hopefully these other boys will get in pretty soon after the 15th deadline but if they don't and others get in on appeal precluding them it will make the thing even more of a mockery than it all ready is.
p.s he refuses to believe in God but so glad he was prepared to step in and do his brother's reading last week. It was on Jesus raising Lazarus, miracles do happen
