Not sure whether to appeal My dd missed the pass mark for Urmston Grammar by 13 marks which was a surprise. She got 106 in the English, 115 in the Maths and 121 in the NVR. Her CAT scores in March of year 5 were VR 119, NVR 127, Maths 121. She was level 5 in her Maths and reading and level 4b in Writing.
The only mitigating circumstances are that her prescription for her glasses had changed by 1 dioptre (which I believe is a lot) and we couldn't get her new glasses in time for the exam. The optician also said that she would only be able to wear her new glasses for short periods of time due to there being such a large change. The glasses she wore therefore for the exam were giving her bad headaches. The only other thing that may have affected her was the building work going on at home that meant we had no full kitchen and were eating microwave meals and confined to all living in one room in the house. Difficult to know if that could have affected her though.
As Trafford have a number of Grammars she has also sat another two exams, but we will not know the results of these before the appeal has to be in. Would appealing for one school affect our chances of appealing to each of the other schools?
Just very worried as I want to do the best I can for my daughter
