have the school stated what information will be supplied with the result, as the previous years "last place offered standardized score" is not going to be of any use is it?
Don't know exactly what form the result will be. The information sheet just states "Test results will be sent to parents from Tuesday 15 October 2013" and information evening is to be held on Wednesday 23 October 2013 – 2pm – 3pm.
There may be more info about how results will be presented at the open evening in the summer term.
However I think that the school should be able to produce a more precise rank order of who is applying for a place. The school should be able to tell the first 120 girls that they would be offered a place, and give an indication to those with lower scores an indication of where they are on the list and likely hood of being offered a place. Even if you don't make the first 120, its worth applying if you have a reasonable score as there will always be girls sitting the exam who want to go down the indie route and are using it for practice; and other girls will be using the new exam as a back up and are applying to the CSSE schools as first choice. (The csse had the great disadvantage of not knowing exactly what school people were applying to.)
