I am new to this site and would really appreciate your help.
My son scored 319 for Queen Marys boys and the cut off is 321.
I was informed he was 20 on the waiting list on Tuesday, and they can't tell me how many others boys are 20.
Does anyone know what his chances are ??? There does not seem to be much talk about QM boys on this forum.
Also does QM boys have a lot of movement on the waiting list ! Hoping it does as its not in Birmingham.
Many thanks, worried mum !!!
I think you should change your name to Big Miss positive.I have not known the exact cut off on offers day last year I have heard 324 and I have heard 322 on this forum recently I don't know what is correct.You have the last cut offs for the last places from the waiting lists in the letter from the school which from memory were 318 and 319 for 2014 and 2015.The cut off this year was 321.
I think you have a good chance of a place.
I think there has been a lot of distortion of the results this year more so than other years with all the outside sitters who have no intent of taking a place in the school.
There are 30 extra places at the school this year compared to last year.I also have heard at my daughters ex
prep school and my nephews school they have had a very good year compared to last.Only about 4 boys had offers and went to the school.This year they have 13 offers and the majority are likely to go.The school is part of the QM schools foundation.
Admissions to the school are strictly on the scores in the exam.Here is a link for their policy. http://www.qmgs.walsall.sch.uk/_content ... ements.pdf
There seem to less people from Walsall and Wolverhampton contributing to the forum maybe there are more lurkers.
