From what I have seen so far they look pretty consistent. I received 4 more Shirley mock scores between 75 and 77% and these translated to SD’s between 222 and 237 - slight discrepancy here but in line with what other posters have reported.

By the way I saw a score of 148 in VR section. Must be quite an exceptional and one-off raw score to equate to that SD and probably the only one to get that sort of high raw. Quite unusual to have that high an SD

Hi,

This will be a very useful post for those sitting the test next year. I was looking for similar information a few months back.

Aug mock 76 %
Actual score 232

Poppypup,

I saw your post earlier, which seems to have been deleted since. To answer your question, the way SD scores distribution works is that you will always get the same percentage of children scoring above or below a certain SD score, irrespective of the year the test was taken. So, it would be incorrect to assume there are likely to be more higher scores this year than previous years. However, it would be correct to assume that the actual cohort size this year went up by approx. 600 children, so the percentage of children achieving above a certain SD would also have gone up proportionally.

And what exact difference the additional cohort size will make to Camphill Girl's cut-off is anyone's guess. It really depends on how many additional candidates taking test were genuinely interested in Birmingham and weren't just sitting it as a potential mock to prepare for other regions. And, we don't really know which way the wind will blow this year, and how many parents will favour CHG over other schools and whether the trend of CHG being the number 1 choice for parents be similar to previous years. So, as you can see there are a lot of variables here. All we can reasonably assume is that all other things being equal, and going by previous year's stats, and additional 600 children taking test, the cut-off might go up by a very small margin - maybe a couple of points.

Hi, adding another score to the mix

June Mock result 77%
Test result 249.

I would recommend the mocks to others for the experience anyway as I think this helped reduce nerves on the day.
