I`m probably stressing to early but which school are you keeping as an alternative?
I will be trying Sale, AGGS and Loreto.
But if my DD fails I cant even imagine which school to choose
Wellington? BTH? A Level results comparing to grammar is much worse.
Thank you x
It is sensible to look at options as you will need to put somewhere on the CAF that you have a reasonable chance of being eligible for and are happy to attend (OK not always easy to identify, that's why it is good to think about it)
A level results at non selective schools will rarely be as good as selective schools because of the selection that takes place earlier at year 6/7. But remember there is a lot of movement after GCSEs - many kids go onto 6th forms at colleges, some go to the Grammar School 6th form etc etc . Quite a lot of kids, one way or another , will not do A levels at the school they started at in year 7.
Worth visiting to see what you think of places and try not to use A levels as a measure
