Was just wondering if your children scored what you expected.

As this year has been so strange I am thinking maybe scores are different than usual.

Not sure if other people have found that to be true or not.

I have heard a real mixture of results. No one getting higher than expected but a lot getting much lower.

What are your experiences of this? I don't really want to know your score , just if it is higher, lower or what you expected.

good question. For CSSE, I had ds and and dd. I had them do past papers under exam conditions. I managed to get hold of formula to standardise these, and there was a wide range of upto 20 ponts for each child. Both were within the range, dd on the upper end, ds on the lower end. Happy with dd score, disappointed with ds, although not completely unexpected.

My DD had sat the past CSSE papers at home prior to exam - for English scored between 45-50 on all of them - came out with 48. She had always struggled a bit more with the maths - apart from the past papers, we did no real CSSE specific tutoring so some gaps in her knowledge..... She felt she'd had a shocker so we were expecting the worst - however scored 39. Pleased with her result in the end..... SS of 359

Definitely some 7-8 marks less in maths and 5 less in English based on my DC's performance on past papers sat under exam conditions.

My DS did as expected in maths but scored 10-15 marks lower in English than he had done in any of the previous papers he did as mocks. Overall score of 320, which would be too low for KEGS or Colchester based on all previous years so we're not hopeful.

About 7-8 LESS in maths.

May be 2-3 MORE in English

Maths was their strongest subject.

Please can we not go into which days people took each paper. There are 2 or 3 threads about that already.

Similar - a few less in maths, a few more in English. Maths had been by far their strongest subject but ended up pulling in equal marks.

They never really got on with the prescriptive ‘Describe this thing/Explain that thing’ type CW questions and hadn’t been coached to death, so very possibly benefitted from the freer nature of the Monday sitting.
