Can anyone please help me ? Do you know of any cases when an extremely bright child has flunked the Pates test for some bizarre reason and then managed to get in after appeal ?

thanks for that - I had a search but not found out anything regarding Pates . The child concerned had been a consistently high scorer in all the practice tests ( 90 % + ) . A re - mark has been requested but I don't hold out much hope! Things must have gone very badly on the day - maybe nerves, who knows ?

The link is-

http://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/utilities/action/act_download.cfm?mediaid=24763


This is to the Admissions Forum annual report for secondary admissions for 2007-it states that of 17 appeals for Pates,2 were upheld.I am sure that the report for 2008 will not be long.

Regards
GM

practcie scores of 95%+ are needed to be Pates confident not 90% from my experience.

You have been missed! Welcome back to the land of the living.

MChelt - did your child get a placing at all in the test? The fact two appeals were upheld in a previous year indicates that it is worthwhile attempting an appeal - if you have sufficient evidence then you definitely have a chance. Yes 15 failed, but 2 were successful and so could you be.

Good luck and check out the appeals section for helpful hints and tips.
