My son has just received his 13+ results and his score was 120. This is extremely frustating as he really did work very hard and he used to score consistently well on his practice papers.

I am planning to appeal but I am not sure what academic evidence I need to provide in order to increase our chances of success. He is currently in Year 8 so I would imagine it would need to be more recent academic evidence. I am also not clear on the levels they need to be achieving in order to prove alignment with GS academic standards.

How important is it to provide extenuating circumstances if the score is so close?

Any idea what the success rate is for these kind of 13+ appeals?

Any help in building a successful appeal will be much appreciated!

Dear Kiki01

Welcome!

Although it was written with 11+ in mind, I assume you've read the following?
http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/11plus ... rs.php#b11

For 13+ one would hope to see level 5s in English, Maths & Science at KS2, and I suggest he should appear to be on target for at least high level 6s, preferably level 7s, at the end of KS3.

I don't believe it is.

What you really want is the success rate for a 13+ appeal with 120. We've seen such a statistic for the 11+ before, but I'm not aware such detail has ever been published for the 13+. I suspect you'd stand a good chance, provided you have strong academic evidence.
