Does anyone know how many sat the 10+ this year. DS says that there were 180 boys there, which seems dramatically up on the 110 that we were told sat last year. Eeek!
Eeek indeed - 180! My DS doesn't know how many (I asked again this morning). He thinks there were 15 in his group - but how many groups - no idea?
I know numbers go up year on year. 99 for 2011 entry, 110 for 2012 entry - but to 180 is a big jump!
Also the number of acceptances go up year on year: Last year they offered 52 places (with a view of expecting 40 acceptances), consistently with years before, but more accepted than they intended so in the end there were 45 places boys who entered that year (and not one from the waiting list)!
Oh dear - only another week or two (if interviewed) to go so we can then move on: celebrating or putting plan B into action (for us, staying in state primary for another year .....).
