No,I don't think that there is anything to stop this from happening.They could lower the pass score and the pass needed in each paper to get the desired amount of passes. It is as simple for KCC to lower the score as it is for them to raise it...They have to tweak the process so the top 21% pass (allowing a further 4% for successful ht reviews). The passmark needed per paper has been as low as 115 before now (some years ago before the equal preference system). If they were in this position it would be a great time to overhaul the way we handle appeals in Kent. I would like to see non qual appeals being heard before March so the successful ones can be part of the main allocation. KCC could factor this in at the same time.
