Hi Can somebody able to provide cutoff marks/percentage for top 25 state grammer schools in 2014 as it will be helpful for many parents.
bucks 121/199, 61%
Berkshire and slough 111/165, 67%
Kendrik girls ?/?, 85%
henrietta 219/ ?, ?% above 95 I gues's
Chelmsford girls high ?/?, ?%
Colchester girls high ?/?, ?%
Nonsuch grammer ?/?, ?%
Wallington girls high school ?/?, ?%
Tonbridge girls grammer 371/420 for super selective places out of catchment 350/420 for inside catchment
Pete school ?/?, ?%
Colyton grammer ?/?, ?%
Wallington girls high ?/?, ?%
please update as much as information available
above mentioned are only 2014 cutoff marks as I picked up from various school website's and threads here.

I think it is quite difficult to say for some of these schools as the pass mark as a percentage is never really known - it certainly is not the straightforward raw score / max score as there is often standardisation based on age etc

Standardised scores don't work like that OP ... in the 'old' Bucks 11+ you had to get around 90% to equate to 121.

You will not get a place in a Bucks GS from Cambridge so don't waste a choice on your CAF.

Why would one person want that information for all those schools? It's meaningless. You can only apply to the ones you are in catchment for, apart from a small number of non catchment schools.

By the way, it's spelled "grammar".

For a bit of light relief, have a look at the GL Assessment website - the normal distribution, standardisation etc are well-described there. Also in various posts on this site; if you use the use the 'search' facility with an appropriate keyword, you will find them.

Thanks peridot
I thought it would be helpful for few parents who will be searching for cut off marks like me. I am sure my daughter can't sit all those grammar schools . But at least few of the school cutoff marks will helps

The standardisation is different, the population taking the tests is different ... it tells you nothing at all!

Why would such information be useful? I would think the majority of people would be applying to a small group of schools in their area or where they may be locating to, not every school no matter where it is because it is in the top 25. I would hope parents looked at other things when choosing a school for their child, not purely rank.
