Hi, I am new to the forum. My DS standardised score was 109 and I am looking to appeal.
Do I still list the slough schools on the CNF?
Do you know if any appeals at the slough consortium were won last year based on non-qualification/know where I can get this information from?
Thanks

If no one on here can tell you, you could try writing to the individual schools requesting the information:

The problem is - they may only be able to tell you the number of successful appeals, not the basis on which the appeals were won.

I will be appealing on the basis of non-qualification - (1 mark off). Slough schools are oversubscribed so will I have to attend 2 appeals for the same school to deal with non-qualification and then oversubscribed or will both these issues be considered together in part 1 of the appeal?

Thanks

As far as I'm aware, in Slough you can expect both issues to be dealt with simultaneously at each school's appeal hearing.

(I've merged your posts as it helps to have everything to do with your case in one place.)

You will definitely have to address both issues at the same appeal. Although the qualification mark is 111, due to oversubscription you would be best served to try and show an ability of higher than 111. There are many that will have qualified for the Slough Grammars but will not have a place as they are not ranked high enough (unless you qualify under a distance criteria).
You have to convince them that there is ability well above the 111 mark, they didn't perform on the day and that it is obvious that they will thrive at grammar school.
