That does make sense. I liked the VR as it pulled his score up, but suppose nobody has that now-it's just down to the maths and English. Unfortunately, Maths is my DD's strong point and the head of one of the grammars has said that there were some high scoring maths papers...
Maybe there weren't many though!!
I found this from two years ago when looking at the scores from my DS.
Your child’s raw scores in the three tests are as follows:
English Score 23/50
Mathematics Score 23/40
Verbal Reasoning Score 45/80
These three results are adjusted to take account of any variations in the difficulty of different papers each year and combined to produce your child's overall, standardised, weighted score of: 307.772
This suggests that a score of just over 50% (54%?) was enough to get a Southend pass? Maybe even lower to get a SS of 303?
I wonder if a score of say 32/60 in both papers would be enough to get 303?
That just can't be right though. Surely most people who sat it would get 50% or above?
