Hi there - I'm a first time poster
I'm putting together an appeal for our DS who's just scored a shocker of a low double (!) in the Bucks 11+
He's currently at level 5 (predicted 5As) for SATs, had a 1:1 recommendation from the Head Teacher and extremely strong support from his school, plus NFER practice papers over a year with scores in the mid 90s (as a percentage) (I know this figure won't add anything to an appeal but it showed us he was more than capable...)
It's going to be a very tough appeal - DS has never done any CATs - it's not something we've ever come across in our borough - would you advise getting some done privately in support of an appeal or is there a different test we could do which would be better for appeal evidence? We just don't have any other data which supports the appeal apart from SATs....
(And - out of interest - statistically what are the odds of getting the same score on both papers - especially an unexpectedly low one?!)
Any thoughts/suggestions much appreciated,
