Hi totogrim welcome to the forum. I think that you will find that a child cannot take the 11 plus again in the same area if they have not acheived the passmark. They can usually be assessed for admission in later years if they have any spaces - but only once in each year.

If you feel that he could have done better and have good evidence of his academic ability and info about extenuating circumstances then you could try appealing now. Have a read of the info at the beginning of the "appeals" section.

best wishes
herman

Right. Apart from going to appeal, that is the only way to have a second chance, as far as I know. There won't be another sitting of the exam this academic year.
