Welcome to Appeals - and thank you for your kind words.
Have you followed the links to reviews/appeals in Sally-Anne's post?viewtopic.php?f=12&t=48535
Read carefully all the links to extenuating circumstances in the Q&As. For example:http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... cation#b10
...... I wondered if I could refer to a very messy and prolonged divorce ending in 2015 as a reason my son didn't perform to the best of his ability.
For a review, they do say "the SRP will normally expect there to be strong evidence of both high academic ability and exceptional reasons for underperformance in the tests
”. Might you finish up in the awkward situation of trying to argue that the divorce affected him on one day in September - but that his academic performance the rest of the time has been good? I don't think that would stand up to scrutiny!
If he hasn't
been performing well-above average in school, the chances of a successful review or
appeal are slim.
If he has
been performing well-above average, there is no reason why you shouldn't try an appeal in Bucks as well as in Slough.
Hope this helps.
