:shock: friend just received her dds results for bexley 11+ and she got a score of 249 she had only got a level 3a in maths in year 4. She will be going to a grammar just wondering if there could of been a mix up
First of all, many things could have happened in Year 5 that helped the child to gain the necessary skills. It could be tutoring, could be the school's teaching, or that the child had a lightbulb moment and everything fell into place since. Children can learn so rapidly.
Secondly, maths only count for 25% for Bexley. Verbal is 50%. So if she has got a very high verbal and non-verbal score, it can compensate a slightly lower maths score (if that is the case).
