Am new to this forum so apologies for asking a question that has no doubt cropped up before but reading some of the earlier threads seems to present a slightly different picture to the one I thought before and I'd be very grateful if someone could confirm my understanding.
Looking at the Judd school document http://www.judd.kent.sch.uk/Documents/P ... Prosp%2006
suggests that to have achieved the maximum score of 140 would have required a minimum of 75% VR, 71%NVR and 75% Maths. Presumably the idea that to get into a highly selective school like Judd requires near 100% has come about because most of their pupils score near the perfect 420 (140 x3) - when in reality many of them will have scored in the 70-80% region?
What confuses me is that the pass rate of 120 quoted in this document shows an equivalent score of as low as 48% for Maths - this seems remarkably low for a pass rate?
Some of the practice papers (like Bond) talk about the necessity of scoring 84% - but presumably this is a national average and that the figure for Kent is lower because of the larger number of grammar places available?
Be grateful for any clarification!
