I'm new to this forum - only stumbled across it the other day. I'm a little confused as to the review process (please bear with me!!) My DS (?) missed out on passing the Medway test by 1 mark. We asked for a review. The basis was that he only missed by 1 mark, his grades at the end of year 5 were 4a for maths & 3a for English, but the school said they had work to show that his English was also consistently above average. They also had maths & science work to back up our review.
My main concern was that his English wouldn't be good enough, but the panel found that his English & Science were good, but his maths "showed lack of pace and development of higher princples"
I am a little confused because his grades and maths work (according to his headteacher) show that he consitently works above average levels and his highest mark on the 11+ test was also maths.
At the risk of sounding bitter and twisted (which I'm not - just frustrated, I think) has anyone else found inconsitencies in the panel's findings? Also, does anyone think this is a basis for further appeal, bearing in mind that I now have to prove the review was not carried out in a "fair, consistent & objective" way?
Sorry for rambling on, but appreciate anyone's comments.
