Hi everyone! pass marks? I know this is classified but I am going to have a guess of 75-80%. Am I in the right area?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Tiger have a look at the Manchester Grammar papers on its website if DS can get 50% on those paper in year 5, your definitely on track for any Grammar. Some of the papers for the weakest indies a 50% score on a MGS paper probably translates into 100% on those papers.

50% raw score equates to a score of 300 on the test. Out of 1500 sitters about 510 (34%) will achieve a standardised score of between 280 and 300. Another 510 will get above average say 301 - 320.

In the second standard deviation above average there will be about 210 in the range 321 -360

Finally about 30 kids (very able) will score above 360. 1 possibly 2 will get over 400 in thw whole of Manchester - I would suggest near 70% would be getting you a very very good score possibly 348 or something like that. 80 - 90% and your into 375 territory and higher.

Watch out for the impact of those 30 additional places. Same situation at Queen Mary's Grammar Boys. Head there predicts that cut offs could be as low as 310 from previous mid 320's. So 334 could come down into the mid 320's as a result
