I am very new to all of this and wondered if anyone can offer some clarity.

My boy heard today that he had passed his 11+ , he needed 220 and got a score of 250. Good news I thought but of course he still doesn't know if he will get a place as this might be too low. The Max was 286 after all and with grade inflation maybe everyone get 286? Does anyone have any idea if he stands a chance of getting in?

Any thoughts gratefully received.

Am sure that the cut off for offers of places over the last few years has been between 220 and 230 - though am sure someone can tell us exactly.

Thanks for the speedy reply. If what you write can be verified things are looking up for my boy! All day I have been pleased he passed but concerned that his score was low.

Also Belvoir that isn't a raw score as such, so no, they won't all be able to get 250. Well done to your DC! :D

Many thanks HermanMunster those links are encouraging.

To Our Man in Havana thanks for taking the time to reply and please excuse my ignorance but what does a "a raw score" mean?

No problem, basically the raw means that the score hasn't been standardised. It's difficult to explain and I don't want to mislead you, but I think I'm right ?? in saying that the 250 is more a centile measured against the rest of the cohort. It's a good score!! Enjoy!!

WOW! Standardised, centile.

Modern education is an opaque mystery, learning is so much easier!

I raise a glass to Our Man in Havana.

Thanks
