We are appealing DD's 117 result on the grounds that she is predicted level 5 for maths and level 6 for English.
I've just spoken to someone at the admissions team who recommended that I enclose DD's report for Year 5 with my forms - I've looked through it but the teacher assessed pages only say she is a 4B for english and science. Maths has no level. The optional SATs results at the end are 5 for English and 4C for maths .... is this good enough to include or am I undermining our case???
The 4C for maths in Y5 might give the panel cause to doubt the prediction of Level 5 in Y6. With the usual rte of prgrogess being 2 sub-levels per year, that would only take her to 4A in Y6. Likewise, the 4B for English could indicate that the Level 6 predication is slightly over-optimistic.
Has the Head predicted a sub-level for maths, or just "Level 5"? If the Head's summary sheet is strongly worded and her predictions are made with confidence I would probably be inclined to leave the report out, but the trouble is that we have no way of knowing whether a review panel will look upon that unfavourably. I am afraid it may be "damned if you do, damned if you don't".
