My daugher got 115 in the bucks 11 plus, but only 104 for berkshire. Do you think it would be worth appealing for a Bucks schools. Her grandparents seemed to think so!!

Hi alysha1999

I would go for it... but not sure what Berks result means.
However, we went for [Bucks] appeal last year with 118 and were unsuccessful - but, that doesn't mean you will be though!

It's very stressful for all concerned, but there's loads of information on here to help if you go for appeal.
Good Luck

Nicky & kids

Hi Alysha99

On a score of 115 (the other score is also important) your chances of succeeding statistically at an appeal are around 18%:

I suggest that you read this before deciding whether to go ahead:

Whatever you decide, you need to get your skates on, because the deadline for submitting an appeal is now less than a week away.

The date is actually not given in either of the standard booklets, just the "21 days". However, everyone I know here is quoting Thursday, not Friday.

Is the date actually printed on the Appeal application form?

Hi Sally-Anne
The date of issue is prrinted on the appeal form, and yes, you are quite right, it says 'within' 21 days which would actually make it Thursday. Glad I checked again!
thanks, Sianyn

A grey area, and a touch lazy on the part of Admissions, because 21 days is really a matter of interpretation! The date could so easily be included on the form ...

However, don't fall foul of it, and get that form in on Thursday at the latest!
