.......in going to appeal when a review has been turned down?
What % of appeals are successful, and, or those, how many actually get a place because by then the schools are full? Has someone got that data? For Bucks? I can't seem to find it online.
I'm afraid we've not got the figures, and am not sure if they're published anywhere.
Perhaps someone on here could do an FoI request, and share with the forum?
What we do know from reports on here is that some
grammar schools had sufficient vacancies for all
appellants last year. (Whether that will be the case this year remains to be seen.)
Even where the grammar school was full, there have been individual cases on here in the past two years that have succeeded at the oversubscription stage.
No one, of course, should go into an appeal expecting
to win, because the odds will always be against you.
However, appeals are unpredictable, and you never know - you might
And for the 12+, from what I have seen online, whilst many pass, hardly any places are available it seems. Is it even worth sitting that?
Buzzybee - and others - would say 'Yes'.http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... cation#b54
