Hey everyone, this is just to pass time, a light hearted thread - predict the score of your dc. You can explain how you worked out your guess but it could be without basis! Once the letter arrives - you can post the real score quoting your guess if you wish.

I predict my dd would get 210 in KE test. Yep, we've been around to see local comps. Luckily, we are spoilt for choice.

Son and I have done this at home. My prediction is 225, his is 235. I think he's likely to just miss KEFW, he thinks he'll just hit the necessary score

Walsall score was 347 - there was an awful lot if brain dead holiday time between the two tests. By the way, we base this on absolutely nothing, given that he can't remember anything. It's a pure guess.

I've made about 50 different predictions using vza's formula, nfer standardisation formula, msd's equations, pp's aunties formula and they vary that much that I've given up!
But if I had to say I reckon it's going to between 160 & 290.
Not long to go now
Your turn now MSD, pp, NM et al

Oh come on Bob - go for it. No one will hold you to it and if someone thinks you are boasting they can p*** off

yes, she sat Walsall, got 307 but she had limited preparation till July, our main preparation was during summer hols - 2 hours a day and she has come on a lot since then. I am quite relaxed about it - I know she has done her best, I know we have done our best preparing her - she was happy to study, she wasn't stressed out we did what we could basically and if it wasn't enough and she does not get in so be it.

Ditto Bob. I will be horrified if she scored is less than 200 because of the 360 on Walsall. Momentum was lost badly between 1/7 and 12/9

If she makes 209, that will do me as qualifying score achieved, although I will be peeved at having limited options in Brum.

My prediction after all the messing about with formula's and increasingly strong assertions from DD that she messed up "big time" on KE is 211

TiredM - that could have been a very nice strategy - peaking at just the right time. Mine did two hours a day Mon and Tues, but struggled to get her motivated - she wanted her holiday
