Thought I may as well start this as those letters will be due on Tuesday.

This year, Latymer Upper held their 11+ exam on two days. Not sure if it was because they had stacks more applicants, or because it was easier logistically. I believe that, unlike KGS, the papers were different for each day.

Any insight, anyone?

The 2nd day was only to accommodate the DC who weren't able to sit the main day due to an exam clash (Latymer and Alleyn's exams were on the same day this year). There weren't many DC at the 2nd exam, I'd say 30-40 at a guess?
My DS did the reserve date but I couldn't tell you if the papers were different as I don't know what was in the first one!

I don't think the other DC had another exam that clashed that first day, though I could be wrong.

Have just received an email re Latymer music scholarship audition, btw.

My DS said that all the DC he spoke to on the reserve day were there because they'd been at Alleyn's on the Tuesday.

Congrats on music scholarship email. That must mean you will be hearing about an interview too?

Not long to wait now for the rest of us...

DS has an interview! Very relieved. Anyone know numbers being interviewed vs number of offers made?

A friend rang Latymer yesterday as she hadn't received the letter and was told that 900 sat the exam and about 350 have been asked for interviews for 124 places (with another 40 coming through from the junior school). These numbers aren't pinpoint precise.

Hope that's useful!

I've always told DD that Latymer - unlike the other schools she is applying to - is a bit of a lottery - Numbers so huge they wont always let the right ones through!!!

She's been lucky - other good friends equally talented havent been - Important we dont let our kids believe it means anything about them

That's helpful tw9mum, thanks for that info. I had heard that around 1000 sat this year! I wonder how many of the 350 interviewed will get offers, given that most people apply to multiple schools...
