We had our appeal on 1st May, and have found out today that it was not upheld by the panel
Sorry to hear that.
[quote]I am rather confused by the letter, as they state that they recognised that she was "reported" to have a number of strengths in terms of academic ability, but due to a lack of evidence as to why her Maths score was not a true reflection of her ability?!!
We were not allowed to take any school work so what else could i submit as evidence. [quote]
Who said you couldn't take school work? Would your school not release it? Photocopy of homework book? Certainly you are allowed to produce anything you like as evidence.
The one problem is that a predicted
SAT is just that, a prediction. And technically, a prediction is different from a provable fact - one might, or might not
be true, the other can only
be true. Some teachers may 'predict' higher results for an appeal to boost the number of children going to grammar from that school, which then looks better.
I tend to take note of the predictions, but also like to see any other test results that are around. We don't have separate maths tests here, but if we did, I'd wonder why a child did well in a non-maths test and not quite so well in the maths one.
Not a help, but my thoughts.
