Rather usefully, SHS provided a bit more info in their letter than anyone else, I thought I would share with you so that you would find it useful:
966 girls sat the test in the county and they stated their are approx 400 places for girls across the county (I guess assuming a 50:50 split with Pates).
591 girls shared their results with SHS
It may be useful, if Marling put the same level of info in their letters for someone to post that perhaps ?
The results letters are quite clear whether children definitely have a place (top 120), are in the ranking or if not qualified, it really does just say "not qualified" if not, so no more agonising over being perhaps 1 mark off etc, which is quite a good idea I think.
I feel it was very well done this year, e-mails all seemed to go out at 3.30 pm which those at the top of the alphabet receiving theirs first. Good luck to the children sitting next year, I'll be back for DS in 2017 entry
