Our DD missed out on TOGS by a few points VR 140, NVR 137 and M 127. Maths is her strong suit but she got upset in the exam, had a few tears and it took her a few (10) minutes to settle down.

We are out of county so she took the prctice paper the week before. Can we use that exam paper in an appeal in any way and if so how do we go about retrieving the paper.

The headmaster at the school where she took it TW Boys' GS said that the papers would be kept for about 6 months.

Thank you.

If it was the sane practice paper that most Kent pupils appear to have taken, it was the "off the shelf" NFER 11D. So any marks obtained from it will probably not help your cause.

Generally speaking I think it unlikely practice papers would be valid evidence, but it depends on local circumstances.

Some considerations might be:-

Were the papers officially marked and standardised in exactly the same way as the 11+?
Are the practice papers in the "public domain" and therefore less secure?
How closely did the conditions and degree of pressure at the practice session mirror those of the 11+?
