received the results of the appeal today
- they did not mention her high academic ability at all - also they didn't mention other important extenuating circumstances around the time of her exam which her primary school also noted down and would have confirmed why she was 4 marks away from pass mark - also nothing about FSM kids in her school lagging behind 4 & 3 terms in all subjects but she achieved 3b's and 3c's in yr 2 and 2 x 5B's and 2 X 5C's end of yr 5 and predicted secure+ including maths (which she only got a 5c for in yr5) at the end of yr 6 and she is FSM . They only mentioned her 3 siblings attending / attended GS, and ongoing court case which I had plenty of evidence of as well.
Her school reports mentioned yr after yr DD is an extremely skilled and proficient writer, excellent band of vocabulary, high level of understanding for maths, technically adept writer, extremely high level of comprehension of significant ideas (teachers own words) time and time again were not mentioned. What more do they want as proof that my DD is of the ability required for GS
How can they determine a child's ability & future over a test that lasts an hour or two instead of 7 yrs of solid positive evidence from school reports by those who knew/know her best, how??
Nothing whatsoever about her solid academic ability, nothing
