So of all the entrants in the whole of Glos, only 263 that passed have asked to be considered for Tommys?
And I have the hope and expectation that a large proportion of them will go to other schools.
Ah! Next question is.... what proportion? And can I work out how far up the ranking my son is?
By the way, does anyone know if Tommy's would have told me if he was one of the top 108?
Hi and welcome highsideuk and congratulations to little highsideuk for his pass. That is an enormous achievement and nobody can take that away from him.
Having gone through the process last year, I would say that many of those hoping for Pates would have ticked for Tommies as well and most of those opting for Tommies would have ticked for Crypt as well. I would also think, perhaps that some of Marling would have done likewise so the total passes is not particularly helpful in whether you have gained a place or not it seems!
It's not the best process and this is a bit of guesswork however I suppose you could take off 50 or so places (as these boys will be taking up places at Pates being co-ed and approx of course) so that brings the amount down to around 200.
Hopefully then there will be enough places between Tommies and Crypt for all boys passing the exam to get a place at a Grammar - it's just which one!
Did Crypt not give out the scores this year? By having this information you would be able to judge whereabouts your DS stands in gaining a place at Tommies. I believe a Crypt score of about 126 also got you a pass at Tommies last year - but you would be at the lower end of the passes. This is all not of any help if Crypt haven't given out the actual marks this year!
Anyway enough of my rambling!
