What does it's say about the cut off on your letter

Just got the result from Tiffin Girls,
My DD got 104.2
Cut off is 106.5 which is 180th child's marks.
Please can someone advise me , whether my daughter will get a place.


If the cut off is 106.5 - which represents the 180th position, and if we assume an average of 100 and standard deviation of 15 - I estimate that 542 took the stage 2 test.

As an estimate of position amongst those that took the test and *NOT* to be confused with waiting list position :-

Position = 542 * ( 1 - NORMDIST(SCORE,100,15,TRUE))

Example:. a cut off score of 106.5
=542 * ( 1 - NORMDIST(106.5,100,15,TRUE) )
=180th Position

Note: Please don't confuse this estimated position as a waiting list position - you need to contact the school for such information.

Also there are some wiser statisticians on this forum - who may see an error in my ways...

May I ask why do you assume 106.5 score to be the 180th rank?

What if X number of candidates between 140 and 106.5 chose other schools as their higher priority and were succesful? Wouldn't then the 106.5 score would be the X+180th rank?

The email we received from the school, clearly said, The highest possible stage two test marks was 140 .
The qualifying mark currently filling the 180th place is 106.5.
Also mentioned , standardized marks take account of raw marks and age.

Based on the response from ksrkuk & bee4.

Additionally, cut off score is calculated by TGS who have no access to which other schools the candidates have chosen and in which preference order so they can't calculate X (at best estimate it from previous years)

Looking at last year we have a little more information which gives us a little confidence.
For example, we know last year 448 students took the exam and on the 1st of March the cut off score was 103.73, plugging these values into the formula instead also yields 180.

But you are correct the score position is not the same as waiting list position as candidates could choose other schools (you will need to contact the school for that)

106.5 is the score of 180th candidate who got into TGS. It is not the 180th ranked candidate who sat for stage 2 test. Many girls would have chosen other schools over TGS, so the rank of the 180th girl would be much higher than 180, my hunch is somewhere close to 230-240 range.

I agree with the clarification about 180th offer not being the same as 180th score. It’s unknown how many of the first 180 scores do not put it at the top of their list for 1 March, but there must be some. That statement is likely true for every school that allocates on ranked scores.

Could someone whose daughter did not get an offer please share (in full) the exact message you were sent? Leave out names/details that could identify your child.
