Just wanted some information, on appealing for 11+, my son got 116. He has been getting much higher marks while preparing for the test. Maybe nerves got to him; I do feel they treat the 10 year olds as if they sitting for their GCSE exams. It should be done in smaller and much friendlier environment.

I want to appeal on the sibling bases, as his old brother is already in Grammar school in Buckinghamshire. But unfortunately we live in MK; they class MK not being in Buckinghamshire. Can someone help and give me some good advice please. Do we have any chance; my son is devastated for not getting through :( . I have to do something for him.

Thanks

Hi there - I am sure the experts will be along to advise you soon, but I think you have to apply on non-qualifaction first - siblings doesn't come into play unless you have qualified first.

For that you have to prove academic ability - and that this result is out of line with what would usually be expected - there is loads on info on the appeals section - have a browse.

Good luck!

Good advice from Booklady.

There's a lot of reading for you to do to start with.
