I’m being really thick but how do we know if they’ve scored enough to apply for a place? Will we only know when we receive the letter?

DD scored 233 in Eastern priority circle. Hoping for RHS.

You don't get given that information in Warwickshire - you have to apply based on what you know, which is previous AQS / Waiting list scores. (Or if you have enough spaces on your CAF apply to all the school you would like to consider you IN ORDER OF PREFERENCE). I have applied to all the schools that DS wants to consider, you never know what might happen with the AQS's, so best to go with your true preference.

Is it normal for the standardised score to be significantly lower than the total of the individual components? (Feb born child so mid-age range).

My understanding is that the Numeracy and NVR are averaged, then added to the Verbal reasoning score. Not sure how the age standardising is done.

I think you can be very confident of a place.

I found the Numeracy + NVR divided by 2 and added to the Verbal reasoning = the score.

Warwickshire usually do NVR + Numeracy = 50% and VR = 50% of score. (There is a correlation between aptitude in Numeracy and NVR and another correlation between ability in VR and good GCSE results) hence the previously used 33.3:33.3:33.3 weighting was deemed inappropriate a few years ago.

Which is a shame for more mathematically minded children! DD scored much higher in numeracy and NVR than VR.

DS 234 Southern Priority Circle. Last year this score would have equated to a ranking of 444 all children.
