at what level would you consider an appeal? I don't think she scored highly enough to merit it .....
Alex might have a view if she's around - but I'd be inclined to weigh up some other issues:
• What sort of appeal success rate has there been for the school(s) you have in mind?http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeals/general#a39
That will give you a clue as to what your chances might be.
• What sort of academic case can you put together:http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... cation#b11
The stronger, and more wide-ranging, the academic evidence, the greater the chance that it might outweigh the shortfall in the 11+ score.
• Not necessarily essential, but were there any extenuating circumstances to account for an underperformance?
.... and don't know if I would want to put her through the appeal process?
You don't have to tell her!
