khanj010 - each appeal thread is considered to be a "personal thread" for the individual's case.

Please start your own thread to discuss your case.

I'm not sure you can move posts to other threads, as this might just be for a moderators but you could try to copy your posts into the new thread.

Thingsbehindthesun is right. I've moved the posts for you.

Please stick to this one thread now (for appeals).

Dear Khanj010

Sorry to hear the sad news but please dont worry. It feels like the end of the world but its not! If the school are willing to support then thats great and will form a large part of your evidence.

Dont despair..good luck!

Hi Khanj010

I am sorry to hear that you didn't get the news you were hoping for. You can appeal with any score however with scores of 109/113 you would have to demonstrate extremely good evidence of academic ability and be able to explain why your DS did not get higher scores on the day. You mention some extenuating circumstances - these are taken into consideration but have to be quite significant to explain the short fall in the marks.

The sort of thing would be if a child was doing really well at school - something happened at home or elsewhere and the child's work deteriorated at that point (not just during the exam) and then they did not get a good exam result.

Probably worth having a word with the head re plans for an appeal

(scroll down to 'f')

The lower scores will have had very strong, wide-ranging academic evidence:

and convincing extenuating circumstances:

You need to read the Q&As! :)

You should also browse through the following section, looking for feedback on previous Bucks appeals in January/February:
