I wasn't expecting them until tomorrow, though hoping for today.

My wonderful DS has passed with a score of 248.

The criteria is as follows:
Cut off Mark - 214
In Area Boys Passed - 41
Out of area boys Passed - 118

So that is 159 passes for 112 places and we are 10.2miles away.

Deosn't sound hopeful does it?

I am so massively proud of him I can hardly contain myself! Roll on 3pm for a massive cuddle!

Well done to your son Fluffy, mine has passed too but we live just under 9 miles away so its still unsure for us too (but he will be getting a mahoosive cuddle and a treat for doing so well as he wasnt really familiar with those types of tests). I wasnt expecting the results til tomorrow either so really happy they came today!

Well done beelaine :D

I am hoping that people that took the test were also taking the Halifax and Clitheroe schools and that we might stand a chance, I am unsure though....queue more waiting until March.

that is quite a low cutoff mark for in area passes this year !

(don't get cross but it may because the girls aren't included - I have heard they tend to make the cutoff higher :oops: ).

Means that the oversubscription is very significant this year, far more than previous years ...pity they aren't going on rank order, Fluffy, as they used to as that is a crackingly good score!

Oh. Good point. Perhaps they could de-lurk and let us know. :D

the booklet we received with schools in lancs on it said about clitheroe: 'A candidate with Clitheroe RGS as a second or third preference, even if they have reached the required standard, cannot be offered a place if they are eligble for a school which a higher preference has been indicated on the Common Application Form' so i take that as reading if your child did the tests for both that if you want Clitheroe you need to put it as No.1 preference so a lot of people might do that x
