Sorry I have no idea, but it must have been thousands. I think we were told 4 children per place sit the test, so if you look at all the schools intake it would give you an approx number.

There are 1272 places available for September 2019 in the Birmingham consortium of grammar schools .If my memory serves me correctly I have heard figures between 4,000 and 5,000 applicants.I however stand to be corrected.Posters have in the past given exact figures someone may know and post it.

I don't have information for this year, but I was googling a few weeks back and came across some FOI requests.

The information provided by Birmingham City Council had the birth month for each (anonymous) candidate and their ranked scores.

11+ admissions test in September 2016 for September 2017 admission = 5129 (lowest score 124)

11+ admissions test in September 2017 for September 2018 admission = 5491 (with some of the children scoring 0 :( )

So this year may see another increase :?:

To add to the above stats, September 2015 had 5574 candidates registered to take the test.

With regards to children scoring zero, I think they are children who registered - but did not attend. Since it's multiple choice questions, a zero score is unlikely, I believe.

I thought that may have been the case, but I also had a thought about the possibility of a child leaving the exam hall at the beginning of the exam due to nerves.
