Is it worth sending copies of actual work from her books, comments from school repors etc or should I arrange for her to complete some more tests? Any advice?
Panel members are not supposed to make their own assessment of intelligence of a child, and at least 1, possibly 2 members are not from an educational background. It's therefore difficult for us to asses the school books - especially as we don't see the work from the children who were successful in the exam and were given a place.
I'd find it more convincing if I had something I could compare with other children. I know that one of the prime reasons for sending children to private schools is so they're not subjected to too much testing, but the results are so useful in this kind of situation. Maybe an Ed Psych IQ test or the like would be helpful.
