 Post subject: CAT polls
PostPosted: Mon Oct 25, 2010 4:56 pm 
I've been asked which item should be ticked if you qualify for more than one item in the poll.

Think it would be most informative if you tick the highest one for which you qualify. I didn't want to rank the schools, but think the qualifying goes in this order:

Boys:
Marling, lowest qualifying score required
Crypt
STR
Pate's, highest qualifying score required

Girls:
SHS, lowest qualifying score required
Ribston Hall
HSFG
Pate's, highest qualifying score required

Because the Stroud polls are separate, it would be possible for everyone to do both the Stroud & appropriate Glos. school, so two votes in total.

Please do correct me if I am wrong about any of this.

Interestingly the most recent one, who got Pate's with good score, did significantly worse in his CAT than the STRS son. Yet DS2 should have been (that favourite old phrase!) so much better at CAT tests as that sort of thing right up his street. Just goes to show what a lottery etc!!

Of course, the qualifying scores for each school can't actually be compared with each other. There are also other incongruities - for the last few years Ribston has been undersubscribed and has filled up on appeal with girls who didn't pass for any school!

Just asked DD1's school for her CAT scores, they said they'd be ready this afternoon when i pick her up! They even said they gave them out in parents evening before half term, we were away. Very impressed with daughter's school!
