I think the figures which you have been given must be for the percentage of all eligible children who took and passed the test, rather than the pass rate for those who actually sat the exam. Round here (Weald / T Wells) the pass rate for those candidates who actually take the exam is around 65%. Could it be that in your area far fewer children sit the test? Do you, for example, have a high number of recent immigrants who don't know the system or are still learning English?
Hi, that was exactly my thoughts, but the woman I spoke to at KCC assured me that it was the number of children who pass the Kent Test, not all those eligible. Looking at it again today, I'm sure it's not right, though. It can't be that low, surely?
