I forgot to add - NGRT score over 15 in 2018 - I'm not sure what the number relates to, I assume was known back in the day as a "reading age"?

Welcome! Is the a Bucks primary or partner school?

It's the maths that is lower so I would briefly mention what you've said.

What data is there for KS1, Y3 and Y4? Has the Head mentioned whether other 1:2s qualified?

Welcome!

VR:113
Not sure this will be good enough, bearing in mind the weight given to VR in the transfer test.
What was the CAT average? (I haven't time to work it out! :oops: )

1 for academic and 2 for attitude
It all depends on whether the head's overall recommendations were realistic.

Quote:
end of Yr 5 ARE are all GDS, and his Yr 6 predictions 111-120 for Reading and Maths, and GDS for Writing.
Good, but what about Y2-4?

My son was in one of the few schools that suffered the timing issue
As I've written elsewhere, if grammar school heads are satisfied that there is evidence that "each individual result is fair and valid", I see little point in raising the issue in review paperwork when two out of three review panel members will be grammar school heads. Moreover, with a respectable score like 120 I can't see that extenuating circumstances should be a big issue.
If I were you I might mention "My son was in one of the few schools that suffered the timing issue" - but don't labour the point.

Thanks - probably very borderline from a panel's point of view.

Have you read the Q&As?

Thing is we have no information about whether they have adjusted the scores because of this audio error.

I think we have to just assume it's been sorted and use any other information/evidence at the selection review.

My son scored 120.75. Fingers crossed we're both successful.

120.75? Jeez that's harsh!

Thanks for advice both that posted specifically in response to this question, and more generally on the forums!

Final questions - how much to write? I'm inclined to keep it brief, maybe bullet point, on the basis that less is more.

Conversely, I don't was to appear like it's not thought out and I've just chucked it in on the off chance.

Any views?
