Trying to figure out what the odds are after today's second stage of:

1. Getting letter of selective abolity

2. Getting a place!

I thought mine had zero chance, which I have since updated to around 10% after listening to other parents all of whom have made similar claims.

Sorry I was a bit flippant!

I think 900 odd sat it. I think last year over 700 passed.

What Is unknown I guess is the proportion who pass who will also be sitting test for tiffin / private school and decide to go for those if they get both.

I also don’t know what the ic/ooc split is of the ones that pass.

Doingthisonce,

Last year, 994 candidates sat the second stage test and 841 were deemed selective by passing the original SET and the 2nd stage Maths and English papers.

So that helps you with 1. As for 2, that depends on how many of those 841 put which school first on the CAF, but last year there were 210 places at Nonsuch and 210 at Wallington, which gives some idea.

Hi everyone, just wandering how your dd found the paper yesterday? My dd said the maths was tricky/ hard. Anyone had the same thoughts?

Same here- guessed the last two but knows 4 were wrong. She couldn't believe the marking scheme for such hard questions....she came it thinking, haven't done well!!

My DD also found maths tricky, and missed out the last four questions. She looked so disappointed when I picked her up. Lots of cuddles and words of encouragement on the journey home. I would never have been able to do this at her age!
