'ohmum' I also had concerns with our HT recommendations/results!
However, as I've posted on another thread, in our appeal the LA Rep brought up the HT recommendations. They more or less said (not exact words
) that we should not be concerned with the accuracy of the results as many HTs base this not just on the expectation of the 11+ but the child's school academic/performance. The Rep also went on to say that there can be a big difference in HT recommendation/results and not to worry about this!
At the time I was slighty surprised by this comment as I fully expected it to be raised at the appeal by the panel. And was prepared with my answer (so helpfully given by Etienne
). However, due to the LA Rep bringing this up right at the beginning of the appeal - no reference was made after that!
