Back here again .. with a non-qualification score (only know the old system so I can't gauge the scoring this time), not sure the best option. Review or Appeal?

DC is oldest in year - 5C Maths, 5C Reading, 4B+ writing, reading age 12 yrs, spelling age 13.04 yrs.

I would like to PM a couple of points.

Welcome back! :)
114 would probably have been viewed as below borderline under the old system. I think it's a better score under the new system!

      I’m afraid if you go straight to appeal, and it doesn’t work out, you’ll be saying “If only we had gone to review.”

Another question - are there any other scores you can request from Bucks CC? I know in the old system you could apply for the raw score to see where they went wrong, but this new system completely confuses me!

Although you can request a remark, I have not found them to be of much use at all.

You can find the Buckinghamshire policy on remarks here:

Hi Sally-Anne, it was not so much a remark of the paper but more of a breakdown of the scores, or is it the only scores we can obtain from Bucks CC are just the scores listed on the form. Is there no way of obtaining raw score of the test, i.e. Test 1 - VR 15 right out of 25, Test 2 - Maths 10 right out of 18 etc.?

If you base DCs score on the top score you mentioned in a previous post it put DC in top 39% (based on weighted score) but obviously more detail would help if we decide to review/appeal.

Also looking at the scores I am really confused as whether the scoring shows DCs strengths (best in maths/NVR, weaker in Verbal) and due to the larger section of the test 50% being verbal DC would have been at a disadvantage - can I PM these scores to you/Etienne for help/advice.

Hope this makes sense... :shock:

With the old test, because we knew what the question types were, a remark and analysis could produce some interesting information. For example, a child might be poor at Codes, which linked to a pre-existing visual impediment.

With the new test we don't know exactly what the types of question were, so you can't make the same link.

I've seen around 8 remarks, and despite my best efforts, I can prove absolutely nothing from them.

Just to add:

If you were to make a request for raw scores under the Data Protection Act, Bucks would probably forward it to CEM, and I think it likely that CEM would have to agree to release of the scores.

However, take note of what Sally-Anne says.

Hi Sally-Anne/Etienne, thanks for your speedy responses - as always :D

From another post, I see that if I apply for remark (although not expecting a difference in score) they show the raw score for each section. It is a shame that it is not broken down further as DCs weak area is comprehension (slow reader) and I know that DC was still carefully reading through the text, didn't want to miss anything :roll: and then realised the time was suddenly running out and so rushed it!
