were there two other numbers too? If so, they were probaby CATS tests, which are generally considered to be pretty good indicators of 11 plus ability. 122 is a good score - but you really need to know the other two numbers as well to mae a judgement.

The month your child is born in, is used to standardise scores.Which takes into account their age at the time they take the 11+.

This might help:

Hi, had another look ar the reports there are no other numbers there, just verbal reasoning score ...so i presume its just a verbal reasoning test that they do in year 5 to see how well the child is going to do in the real thing maybe?

We also receive a score for Verbal Reasoning at the end of Years 4 and 5. In the school report we are told that a standardised score of over 118 indicates likely success in selection tests, so your score looks good.

The tests are by QCA and you used to be able to look at a sample on their website but it seems they are being closed down.

Hope that helps and good luck!
