We are appealing for our DS fro grammar school and have been advised to gain as much evidence of academic ability as possible. Our sons results were only a few marks short of the requirement and were not as good as expected. It has been suggested that we have him retake the 11+ paper with an independant professional and get the results standardised to provide to the appeals panel. However he is now 11 and 4 months so I'm not sure how to go about it, who to ask or if it is even possible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I am not sure if that sort of evidence would be of a great help in an appeal otherwise people would keep taking it until they got the result they wanted. However, if you haven't got other evidence eg CATS / reports etc you may want to consider and Ed Psych report which would be standardised to age and give far more info

bit about reports here:

No, you can't 'retake the 11+ paper'.

You need alternative academic evidence of high ability.

In addition to the link Herman has provided, see:
