Does anyone know the pass mark required for Rochester Grammar?

I assume this is in reference to admission and oversubscription criteria:
"In rank order based on test scores"

I have a daughter there and at the time she sat the 11+ I was concerned she may not score high enough. However, I was advised by a very experienced teacher, who said that in all the time they had been teaching they had never known a child 'who had placed Rochester first and passed not be allocated a place.' This teacher also believed that Rochester paid particular attention to VR scores.... I didn't ask but took this to mean that a child with a lowish pass but high VR score stood more chance of gaining a place.

This was a good few years ago now and circumstances may have changed and is of course merely speculation on my part.

That said it is possible that a child who has passed and placed Rochester first does not get a place, however I think that this would apply to a very very few children.

It is also worth bearing in mind that there are sufficient places for all those who passed to attend one of the Grammars.. and that the spread of preference for these schools is likely to be even considering location of residence. Lets face it.. someone in Rainham isn't going to put Rochester first when they can go to Rainham Mark, Chatham Girls or Fort Pitt!

Hope this helps.

Rochester Girls Grammar selects on highest aggregate scores. Then admits additional children through appeal. Some years all who passed get in, most years they don't.

Hi I'm new to this site, just found it, but in reply to your question I don't know about last year but my daughter's tutor told me the highest the pass mark for Rochester Grammar has been in recent years is 528 and has also been down as low as the actual pass mark, although with the actual pass mark being so high this year I am a little concerned that it might push the Rochester pass mark up higher, my dd is hoping to go there as well.
