Well done to everyone who received good news yesterday.
Unfortunately we were not successful on our review. I have been following your posts for sometime and they have been very helpful. I just don’t know what to do next, if anything.
My daughter scored 113 in her 11 plus results. She was working at the same level as her twin brother and he got 133.
Her HT gave her 2:1 and indicated that three Level 5’s could be achieved.
In my review report The Panel’s view clearly shows that two level 5’s can be achieved and says School academic scores support her STTS result and panel considered the impact of her prematurity and illness on the day of test.
In HT’s report she says. The age standardisation process creates a disadvantage for premature children, as they appear months older that they actually are in development terns. She was unwell on day of the 11+, and was absent he following day. Her parents informed us of this.
Her CAT’s scores for Year 5 do not truly reflect her ability, as there was a concern that she had not been marking the OMR sheet clearly enough and she was also unwell at the time of testing.
She strongly supports this review. Her teachers agree that she would be best placed at a grammar school, hence her ranking 2;1. She is a hardworking student who has made sustained and impressive progress throughout her time at school. I very much hope this review is successful. She has a diligent and determined work ethic and she would thrive in a grammar school setting.
