Would we appeal citing this as a mitigating circumstance or can we claim maladministration?
It would be a mitigating circumstance.
It's certainly worth a mention, but you could be asked if you raised any concerns at the time.
If the invigilator log fails to provide corroboration, it might be difficult at this point in time (even more so at an appeal in the summer term) to establish what happened many months ago.
We didnt raise it at the time because my son mentioned it and it wasnt until we were shocked by the results that we delved deeper. At that point I thought I could only appeal when he had been refused a place.
He is consistently academic so evidence is there.
Do provide as much academic evidence as possible:http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... cation#b11
Thanks head teacher has provided a list of academic abilities, ks1 all level 3s, predicted ks2 writing 5b, reading level 5b, spelling, punc, grammar level 5b, maths 5a, reading age 13.9. Cats verb 133, non verb 122, quant 117, mean 124. I assume these marks are in the right ball park?
Headteacher wont provide anything else, althoygh i ave asked for science sats. Will not having headteachers support go against us?
Thank you for you help x
