Thanks you for your insight Orson-as a parent whose son will be taking the Glos 11+ this November,I am hoping that the test results will be known before we have to send in our preferences form.
Reading the schools admissions forum minutes online,it does seem that this will be the case,although the final decision is still to be made.I also see that Pates has updated their admissions policy to include the results being known before hand(www.gloucestershire.gov.uk,admissions
I have been speaking to a parent whose daughter got a Pates offer-she told me that the papers were of 40mins duration,which slightly confused me?? I also work with a parent of a successful boy-he achieved 119 and 124 in the tests.
We are planning to choose Thomas Rich as we live in Gloucester,although if son fails then its the local comp!!!
