Speaking to an admissions officer today, I was told that more parents than previous years had ticked to have scores from tests taken at other schools shared with her school. Hence a child who would have ranked - say - 120 last year will be lower down the list this year. I didn't ask for numbers and wasn't told them.

Pretty much as we have all suspected, but nice to have it confirmed.

Yet still the cohort sizes (eg STRS) seem to be down on last year and the year before ... or am I missing something?

It's not that more children have taken the test - maybe the opposite - but each school has more children to rank.

Capers, thanks for the reply. As you may have guessed we're in the Twilight zone with a 220 from STRS and 117.5 from Crypt. STRS is our DS's preference and logistically STRS suits us best (we're Foresters!) so I think our choices take care of themselves but it's a horrible place to be! Nails gone, have cramp from crossing every part of our body, and can see we'll all be nervous wrecks by March.

BJOD when DS2 was sitting last year I was hoping for a score in the 220s. Nothing is certain but with the lower number of passes this year I would be quietly confident in your place.

Also with Crypt improving its scores year on year more parents, than previously, with a choice not dictated by the logistics of travel will opt for it over Tommies. Which is better for all concerned IMHO

Goodluck.
