Your result will hopefully help you focus on the areas where there were more marks you could have picked up. That is how a mock helps. It shows you what your dc needs to improve on. Were you surprised by the result? Were you expecting her to do better? What is the format of the exams she will be taking? DG

Dont Panic.

There is some very irrational worrying going on in this thread. You have to use the results constructively. It is a mock (practice paper) doesn't mean your DC will get identical score in real thing.

1) For many it will be first time they have sat an exam in big hall.
2) Not exactly the same children will sit the real one, some might have no intention of applying to Sutton schools, but mocks in their home area are hard to find
3) Everyone has their favorite questions, and others they struggle on, real test could have more or less of ones that are found easier
4) It shows up weaker areas, you still have time to concentrate on this
5) Many will apply and sit at a number of schools, the same exceptional kids will tend to get highest marks in all the tests but they can't go to multiple schools, so being say 150th might get you 70th offered place.

Remember the rank in the mock is no indicator of where you will come in the ranking of final offers due to variables above. Simply use the mock as good test experience and information on where additional practice needs to be concentrated.

Quite rightly pointed out by Snowdaddy.

Test in each school are different. When my DC took the Sutton mocks, it was Maths & VR mainly. We were more interested in Tiffins, which had NVR and VR which is quite different from VR in other schools (say, for example, Slough consortium).

So don't worry at all about the scores in Sutton Mocks. Use it as practice for exam hall experience and as pointer to the week areas. Still 3 months to go for the real tests.
