hi, my son has just recently had his cat tests results which are 108, i am quite shocked as i honestly thought it would be slightly higher. I understand that they are there to provide a basic guideline to help to decide what your child is capable of however i really do not know now which grammar school i should put down as first choice and more to the point does this mean, that he has no chance of passing
Has your son done any 11+ practice tests and on which papers? This would give a ore direct indication of what his level is for the 11+ tests.
As for chosing the schools, it is difficult to know what the effect of the new admission arrangements is going to be have on consortium place allocation. So far, pupils have needed a higher pass score for Langley, but considering Herschel popularity and Slough Grammar split from the consortium, it may be different this year.
What are your real preferences?
