Given that you quote 280 as the cutoff for last year, you are not suggesting your daughter scored 280/290 or something thereabouts
and yet scrapped through OOC ? That would be big big difference from last year then.
It would be so much better if like Wallington Nonsuch gave cutoffs for atleast first list.
Curiousman, if I remember correctly it was under, but as I mentioned earlier I think we may have been offered one of the 15 places ringfenced for those living in Sutton Borough, so you can not use our position as an indication that OOC cutoff is way below last year. Another girl in DD's class was not offered a place and I would have thought of her as equal or higher ability but she does not live in Sutton Borough. All a guessing game
