I am new to the forum. I have never posted anything before but have been a visiting guest for the last two months .
My DD had an unexpectedly low score in the Birmingham results. Her predicted score was around 218 but the actual result is significantly lower . It has come as a complete surprise considering her practice test scores etc. I appreciate nerves may have got the better of her or she may have missed sections although she is adamant she ran out of time at the end - 5 questions.
I wondered if I could seek some more information about the result and if there is any benefit in going for KEHS although fee paying would not be affordable at all.
Any advice would be appreciated.
the only way you will find out about KEHS is by taking the exam and seeing what happens - -there is funding for those who do well in the exam and can't afford the fees, not as much funding as there used to and less than the boys school but it is still there.
In 1979 80% were on free or assisted places, now it is 20%
