Good luck every child!

May I ask is there any thread of discussion Sutton vs Wilson?
We have something in mind, just want to see if any compare materials in the forum. We do have a chance to change the priority.
Thanks.

Good vibes to all! DS did it last year, DD will (hopefully) do it next year and my partner teaches at one of the schools, so although not invested this year, I’m following!

Feel free to PM me with questions re those two schools, Gabriel. :)

We'll be 2/3 of the way through after tomorrow, if DS (year 3) decides he wants to try for the grammar schools too.

Good luck to all for tomorrow.

From my search on history thread, the 2nd round pass rate is very high, only very few children didn't pass 2nd round.
Not sure if it is the same this year.

Wilson’s pass around two-thirds; SGS around four-fifths.

How do you know that?
As far as I understood, 1000 out of approx. 3000 generally passes the first stage, which means roughly %30.

On the 2nd stage, it should be total places of Sutton and Wilson out of 1000 and this means, again around %30-35.

Am I calculating something wrong?

I think you have to take Wallington out of those figures too. Also many children that sit that test will be going for Tiffin too (from this side) & St Olaves from the other side - there's a big crossover. Also there will be a number who just sit the test but can't get a place or will realise that it's just too far. Therefore passing the first stage means you have a pretty good chance of getting a place.
