Places offered by grammar schools are determined by the child's performance in the two VR tests taken in Nov. Reports are only taken into consideration (and requested) when there is a tie.
A tie occurs when children's raw scores (the number of correct answers achieved) considered alongside their exact age at the time of the test, result in standardised scores (SAS) that are the same
. E.g. A child born in September 1997 scoring 70 in a test may receive the same SAS as one who scored 67 but was born in June 1998.
The report would contain information that would help the grammar school decide if the pupil is 'grammar material' or not. This might include SATs scores alongside details regarding progress, potential, personality, behaviour, clubs attended, achievements, instruments played, outside interests etc. Anything that might help build an informative picture of the child.
It's not the norm to see a copy of the report and I'm not sure if you can should you want to.
Also, I can confirm there are 15 types of question in the test, not 21.
