Calling anyone who can comment...
Is there any correllation between the level the child achieves in school and being able to pass 11+.
Seemingly a silly question but in my experience the types of tests are very different.
I suppose what I am saying is it normal for a child achieving a level 4c in SAT's to pass 11+, or do they need to be a 5c or above??
In my sons' year (Y5) there is a small group achieving level 5c and above already in both their Maths and English, and a large group already achieving level 4c and above. This is based on 'Mock' Key Stage 2 SAT's from last year.
Both my Sons achieved 5a in Maths (one scoring 100% in both Papers A and B and the Aural), and both 4a in their English.
Please share your thoughts.
Generally, obviously the higher their level, the higher their chances. However, there will always be a 5a who was a 'dead cert' who fluffs it on the day and a 4c who surprises everyone by passing.
Were your boys given a 5a for the maths teacher assessment as well as in the paper?
