Re: 57% with 4 months to go

Bucks specifically undervalues the Maths score: my DS is a bit of a maths whizz and dyslexic: his Bucks English scores were worth 50% of the marks, NVR 25% and Maths only 25%. He passed (just) but would have been home and dry were the subjects equally weighted. Your DC’s English will to a degree com...

Re: A Levels 2024

We’re doing this with DD1. She has her own health issues (ongoing) but hopefully her exams will go smoothly enough for her to meet her uni offer. She’s done A levels with coursework options which has helped to spread out the workload so hopefully that will help too (Drama/Media Studies/Computer scie...

Re: Appeal advice GeorgeK

Great that you’ve helped bring a positive change for future parents! I’m not sure sending the change of form over to the appeal panel would do much at this stage, but maybe take a copy to the appeal in case it becomes relevent on the day? (that’s just my opinion as a parent though, another poster wi...

Re: Appeal

Hi Tanvi, welcome to the Appeals board. Can you please explain what you’d like to know? There are stickies at the top of the Appeals section (entitled “Read this First” with lots of information about the Appeals process in general. You can “search” also in the forum, and if you put “CCGHS Appeal” In...

Re: Essex Allocations 1st March 2024

okay, I’m confused… If you were in Kent and got an offer from Tunbridge wells Grammar, have you accepted that for your DC? Surely with the TWG place in the bag, your child doesn’t need to sit further grammar entrance exams? Especially one that’s 50 miles away from Tunbridge wells… The places went ou...

Re: CGP 11+ Books Edition Changes

I don’t think they change very often… check on Amazon to see if the new ones are advertised as “revised”… what’s more important is getting ones that match the syllabus type (GL for almost all exams) : someof the old ones will be CEM which, while broadly similar, is now discontinued . CEM had a sligh...

Re: Help with confusing maths question

Badly worded question! a) doesn’t make it clear if the first day is counted (implies not from the wording. but not clearly) b) doesn’t specify what day of the week it is as that couldnchange the answer (though by making it over 3 weeks I think they are trying to make it not matter: childncould lose ...

Re: Selection review - missing info

well, you could argue that not knowing the panel discussion makes it not clearly seen to be objective I guess, on the grounds that the decisionmaking process is not transparent… so the panel’s decisions aren’t markeable against stated criteria. It’s difficult generally to prove not FCO, and lack of ...
