I am hoping someone can give us some advice. We found out yesterday that we've lost our Medway appeal. My son had scored low on the Medway test. I had a hospital appointment booked for the day before the test which we cancelled as DS was so anxious, but in hindsight, we should have postponed the test.
See the section beginning "If your extenuating circumstances are not too strong (in the sense that there isn’t any evidence at all to show that your child was affected) ….. in this situation the best approach is ......

DS sat the Kent test in April and scored 378 but dropped 1 mark in maths. His verbal and non verbal scores were good.
Do you have any other evidence of reasoning ability?
His teacher and head teacher wrote letters of support,
Are they using the right sort of language:http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... cation#b41
Are they focusing on the right issues?http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... cation#b48
..... including levels and stating that he was taking the level 6 maths paper.
That sounds encouraging, but what levels are being predicted?
5b would be seen as safer than 5c.
The letter we received stated that there was insufficient evidence that our Son is of grammar ability.
Go carefully through this list to see what's missing:http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... cation#b11
Read all the Q&As in sections A, B, C, E and check that you're presenting your case correctly, e.g. length of presentation, how to sum up, what to do, what not to do, etc.
