Hi, I thought I'd start a raw scores thread for 2019. You can request raw scores by emailing the pupil number to kent.admissions@kent.gov.uk

My child was 10 year 4 months at time of test and scored 410 total.
Raw scores are:
English 21 - standardised score 128
Maths 23 - standardised score 141
Reasoning 68 - standardised score 141

No information is given to show what the raw scores are out of.

My child was 10 years 8 months
English 21 - 125
Maths 23 - 141
Reasoning 55 - 129
Total 395

Compared with the last poster, my son got the same raw score as yours in English and had 3 marks less (standardised), seems like a lot.

Mine was 10 yrs 2 months

Maths 15 (119)
English 19 (123)
Reasoning 51 (129)

Total 371

Also be interested to know if people had tutors. We didn’t but would consider it for number 2 & 3 to take the stress off a bit I think.

Any views? Does it make that much of a difference/advantage.

We didn't use a tutor, worked through the books for 1 1/2 years before the test so that it was just like a regular bit of homework rather than a big deal.
I think it depends on the child. Some won't do this sort of work with their parents, and some (like my DD) would have hated a tutor.

We did group tuition a couple of years ago, one evening per week. It was great for ensuring the whole exam curriculum was covered by teachers who see it every year. They also covered creative writing, which is something I would have no idea how to teach. There was also a social element, in an environment where everyone was committed to learning. Every child is different, but it worked for us.

The children are standardised against those of their own age in years and months.
Chronological age is taken as years and number of completed months. So, if the test was taken on e.g. 25th of February and child was 11 on 26th February, then that child would be 10yrs 11months.

Wow! Some super scores there, so I'm happy to come into this at totally the other end of the spectrum on every level. I know how these raw scores and ages can give people hope and perspective.

DS born end of July - so 10 years 1.5 months (he was the youngest to sit the paper at his school)

353 in total
Maths - 117 - raw score 14
English - 110 - raw score 14
Reasoning - 126 - raw score 47

Looking back to 2018, there were 80 Reasoning questions, 25 for Maths and 26 for English, so I assume similar or the same for 2019. I'm not sure the 110 minimum reflects a harder paper, a better cohort pass mark or more children actually passing. DS's scores were pretty similar to my oldest son's, who sat in 2017 when it was a 106 minimum.

For those that didn't make the pass mark, it appears English was the paper that tripped them all up - I am hearing of 364s, 361s that have missed the English paper by 2, 3 or 4 marks AND have failed to get a head teacher's appeal through. Opinions? I have a few friends who are wondering whether to appeal on those scores.
