Thanks, I did that. Very useful. I had misunderstood completely
I think therefore it is impossible to "get" 100%. The most you can "get" is 99% (meaning you are in the top 99 percentile)!
This all makes Graveney admission sound much more achievable than I had (perhaps naively) thought. It seems as if the fabled 98% (the cut-off on offer day) isn't as hard as it sounds (although still hard, not so
hard IYSWIM). If I understand correctly: in a test which has say 160 questions - I had thought 98% meant only making four mistakes! But in fact, it seems it means being in the top 2 percentile. And that also adjusted for age.
And that doesn't even mean the top 2 percent of applicants for Graveney
on selective criteria. Its the top 2% of all the Wandsworth test entrants - and all Wandsworth year 6 students enter and all others from out of bourough who want a Wandsworth secondary (not just Graveney). So there must be, what?, 10,000 children of all abilities doing the test.
I am encouraged!
Or do I misunderstand?
