Does that mean 105 applicants turned down QM - which meant the applicant ranked 201 could get in?
No, it does not mean 105 turned down QM. What it means is that 105 applicants expressed other schools as a higher preference and there were offered places at those schools by the council. As a result, candidate ranked 201 was the last offer (96 QM + 105 other schools). Rank orders over PAN for successful candidates are quite common among Grammar Schools and some typical numbers posted on the forum for 2011 are:KE CH - Boys: PAN 93, APPLICANTS 1205, RANK OF LAST OFFER 145 (56 % over PAN)
KE Aston - Boys: PAN 104, APPLICANTS 1429, RANK OF LAST OFFER 414 (298 % over PAN)
KE Five Ways: PAN 150, APPLICANTS 1854, RANK OF LAST OFFER 362 (141 % over PAN)
KE Bishop Vesey : PAN 124, APPLICANTS 1142, RANK OF LAST OFFER 389 (212% over PAN)
Queen Mary's - Boys: PAN 96, APPLICANTS 844, RANK OF LAST OFFER 201 (109% over PAN)
Also how did you get a sd score of 110.4 from the given info?
SD score (pass mark) was calculated from the info (201/844) and normally calculations are fairly accurate in estimating the pass mark.
