My dd got offered place at second preference (local comp). Received 11+ result letter and says she is ranked 155 for WHSG (we live within catchment). I have no idea if this is a good ranking or not, and also whether it is worth going onto the waiting list? Does anyone have any idea about this as also she didn't get the 303 pass mark. So confused!
Unfortunately I think you'll find that you won't get a place if you didn't get 303. This is from the CSSE email:
* For Southend/Westcliff Grammar Schools there are two offer lists, one for children attending primary school within the ‘Southend Priority Area’ and one for children attending primary school outside the ‘Southend Priority Area’. There is a minimum 'passmark' for places awarded within the 'Southend Priority Area' of 303.00, below which your child will not appear on a school's offer list. However, a score above the passmark is not, in itself, a guarantee of a grammar school place.
Hoping she'll be really happy at her 2nd choice
