I can't help specifically with regard to particular schools, I'm afraid.

For general advice, see our Q&As, and especially:

On what grounds are you appealing? QE boys does not have a sibling rule, so a brother at the school is irrelevant. You would need evidence to support his performance being affected on the day in some way (family crisis, disruption during the exam etc), and his suitablility/potential supported by the head teacher at his current school. Good luck!

An appeal panel is not limited to the admission criteria - it is free to consider any argument a parent wishes to put forward.

What weight it chooses to give to a particular argument is, however, a matter for them. Some panels might be very sympathetic where twins are concerned - others less so.
