Hi all

A quick question to clarify appeals and SEN conditions diagnosed following the 11-plus.

If following a marginal fail on the 11-plus, a SEN condition was diagnosed, e.g. dyslexia, would this have any material bearing on the outcome of an appeal?

Many thanks for your feedback

It depends on how the SEN can be demonstrated to have affected the child in the particular paper.

For example, a dyspraxic child with poor fine motor skills might have difficulty marking a multiple choice answer sheet rapidly and accurately. A dyslexic child might have made errors on all the letter code questions (for VR) because they transposed the letters mentally when marking the answer sheet.

A diagnosis in itself doesn't help. What might help is if it can be shown to have disadvantaged them in that particular test.

VillageDad as your DS missed out narrowly on maths maybe dyscalculia would be more relevant?
