Hi. My son missed his 11+ by 2 marks scoring an aggregate of 318.

He scored 115 in reasoning
102 in English
101 in maths

The maths was a shock as currently a 5!! Does anyone know whether it's worth an appeal or can give any advice. He would like to go to gravesend grammar & it is only a 5 minute walk away. His ht did appeal & it came back that creative writing was short & had inaccuracies.

Any help/advice would be highly appreciated.

Many thanks

Welcome to Appeals! :)

Do read the Q&As if you haven't already done so.

I recall a case in Kent where a parent won an appeal in similar circumstances (although maths was the only problem result, and his aggregate score met the minimum requirement).
Admittedly, he had some excellent alternative evidence for maths.

He set out to prove at appeal that the 11+ maths result was a blip. He had the results of a series of CATs tests, taken over an extended period, where quantitative reasoning came out at the 99th, 98th, 98th and 95th percentile. Even allowing for confidence intervals, the sheer consistency of these excellent results made for a compelling academic case.

There was also very strong support from the school. “X recently sat a year 6 maths SATs paper and achieved a 5B. X is consistently good at tests. ….. X is in our top set for maths.
