....... we as parents are proud of her
regardless of our reassurance she is devastated , we feel we should review/appeal. She was tutored, worked very hard, extremely concientious , never had to nag to do work, she was really focused she wanted to go to BHS. Her four friends have all passed and she feel awful as you can imagine and she was only 10 at then end of august, I feel this emotional turmoil is so hard for her to bear.
It's a cruel system.
She has always been a solid academical child her recent Y5 scores 5A - reading, 5B writing, 5C, maths . Reading age of 15yrs.
Good! I would have liked to see some high reasoning test scores as well (CATs, for example.)
Her 11+ score sheet showed that she just missed the pass mark in all three areas I'm don't understand enough to know wether that's a help or a hindrance, any help would be much appreciated to a very tearful mummy.
I don't think it's a hindrance. What matters is the alternative academic evidence.
For the range of academic evidence, see:http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... cation#b11
In your other post you wrote:
The problem with a review would be that they say
they expect exceptional circumstances (although I find it rather difficult to believe that every single review has exceptional circumstances!).
You need to weigh up carefully the pros and cons:http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... aneous#e33
