A parent who recently moved home while her son wrote Bexley and Kent Test and missed it by 9 marks have just asked me if she can appeal as she felt that affected his son performance in the exam.

Please anybody help with this as I could not find any answer in the Q & A.

Thanks

Nick

Hi Kingsgen

She can certainly apply - the basis of the appeal is the same: 1) provide evidence of the academic ability ie previous work / scores etc 2) evidence of extenuating circumstances (in this case the move) and preferably evidence from school showing that it directly affected his work round about that time.

There's a brief mention here:

It's not usually a strong argument, but it rather depends on the exact circumstances (e.g. just how much disruption there was, whether there was any evidence of the boy being upset).

Academic evidence tends to be much more important, and I would have thought your friend should really be focusing on "Do I have a strong academic case?"

The wider the range of academic evidence, the better!
