 Post subject: 119 x 2 (Bucks)
PostPosted: Thu Nov 29, 2007 11:24 am 
My daughter got 119 in both papers. Head expected her to pass and will support the appeal. He had her ranked 19th (year group of 61) and gave her a 2:1.

I am just putting together my letter and wonder if anyone knows if I should state that she didn't have any professional tutoring (although don't I regret that now!!!).

Any comments would be appreciated. :?

I thought that top 25% should pass so if 29th in year group of 60 that is only top 1/3rd...or am I losing my marbles?

Not sure why you think 25% of this particular year group should qualify.

Around 30% of those entered for the Bucks 11+ qualify, but that's an overall figure. In any particular school the success rate could be anything, depending on the calibre of the year group.

Or have I misunderstood? :D

31 children in the year passed, although only 19th 11 children lower than her in the list passed.

Guest that will help your appeal! If she waws expected to pass and others below her did then that might persuade an appeals panel that the result is a blip.

The more accurate the list, the better.

It looks as if one or more children who qualified might not have been listed.

Did all the children ranked above your daughter qualify?
