My daughter's year 5 optional SATs raw scores are as follows.
- Ability band: 1A
- Reading: 38
- Reading test: 5
- Maths A: 29
- Maths B: 35
- Written Maths: 64
My daughter has been on top set at a foundation primary school and taking booster class for level 6 SATs. In class, her score is sometimes better than the 2 children who are on Bexley top 180 boys, especially on Maths and some other qualified girls. In her exam, she had to make more than 20 guesses due to her lack of time. I reckon her shortcoming was her speed and time management.
Bexley exam result: 212/215
- Verbal: 214.33
- Non verbal: 203.27
- Numerical: 217.51
- Distance to Bexley Grammar: 3.1m (30min bus)
- Distance to Townley: 4.4m (40min bus)
Kent exam result: 368/320
- Maths: 114
- English: 116
- Reasoning: 138
- Distance to Dartford Girls: 7.9m (50min bus)
1) Should I appeal for Townley/Bexley? What are my chances of winning? Anyone appealed and succeeded before with similar circumstances? Where do I start to prepare for my appeal?
2) What is the difference between a headteacher's review and an appeal?
3) Cut off score for Dartford Girls in 2014 for out of county children is 413 I heard. If so, my daughter has no chance of being accepted
. Anyone know anything about their selection criteria/benchmark for previous years?
Your advice is much appreciated.
Thank you very much.
