My son has achieved a score of 2 points below the Crypt threshold for this year's intake. I have been advised that we might be able to win a place on appeal. However, I gather Crypt has its own, slightly different appeals process which involves an interview and/or a re-test? Does anyone have recent experience of going through this with Crypt? Many thanks.
No - I have no experience of Crypt. Chat to the schools admissions officer. Whatever happens before allocation day is some knid of unusual informal process, but after allocation day, the normal appeals process will take over.
Make sure that you start gathering evidence / noting mitigating circumstances now, in case you need to go to the formal appeal.
