Hi can anyone tell me how the NW overall score is calculated. Are they standardised ? Thanks.

I don't know precise details but the admissions policy at http://www.newsteadwood.bromley.sch.uk/ ... tation.pdf and in the years before that clearly states that scores will be 'age adjusted'. Therefore a September child will have to score a higher 'raw score' than an August child but by how much I haven't a clue! I have a daughter who is in the middle of her year group age wise and she will be sitting the test in September, gulp.

You need top score for winter born child. Summer born will have the benefit of age standardisation.

Strictly speaking, like should be compared to like, in terms of age - children aged 10 years 1 month compared with each other, similarly 10 years 2 months etc. So the standardised scores can be compared - e.g two standardised scores of 121 can be regarded as equal even if the two children in question achieved different raw scores because the score profiles for their respective ages were different. Not quite the same as just adding on extra points for lower age; in theory, a younger child in a particular 'younger' age group may actually need a higher raw score to get a given standardised score, if that group actually scored more highly in general. (In the CSSE test here in Essex, the scores are not adjusted for age as the HT responsible for the statistical analysis says that the Consortium has never found any evidence that it was necessary and tbh I have never heard anyone at our DC's schools ascribe achievement levels high or low to the position of their offspring's birthday vis a vis the school year).
