Sadly, I have just read Adams entrance test procedure. It states that if you are sitting the exam at Adams and you ticked the box showing an interest for Queen Mary's too, you WILL NOT receive separate results from each school (like last year) We will only get a letter from Adams, indicating 'suitability' for the school, with NO SCORE. Basically leaving us in the dark for another 4 months!!!!!
We went through this last year and it was awful. We only ticked AGS and got a letter saying DS was 'suitable' for the school. We had no idea of his score and whether he had any realistic chance of getting a place.....we listed it as our 1st choice and waited up on 1st March to find he did not get in. It was really stressful, especially knowing that some people had received their scores from QMGS and could make much more informed choices.
I think it is terrible that they wont give out scores, wont even reveal what the pass-mark is and have now stopped Queen Mary's from sharing the score too!! Our younger DS is taking the exam on Monday and we ticked QMGS box specifically so we would get an actual score this year and not have to go through the stress of having no clue of the chances of getting a place...now I find out that it will make no difference.
How can we make an informed choice with no score. When my older daughter went through this, it was straightforward...she did the exam , we got her score (she did very well, luckily) and we knew she would definitely get a place at either school she liked. If she hadn't done so well at least we would have had plenty of time to consider other options.....rather than having that 4-5 month nail-biting wait for midnight 1st March!!!!....
