Hi please can anyone help.

My Son is an "A" student at his school and with his tutors and he was predicted if not guaranteed that he will fly throught his 11plus exam without any difficulty. He has had a tutor for over 2 years and has continued to understand and do well in his subjects , in addition he was going to an additonal specical classes for 11+ for over 6 months.

On getting his results he failed with an average mark of less than 50% , which of course did not get him into any grammar school.

His Grandmum passed away unfortuately in End July , whom lived with him with his Grandad and us, he was left numb and very hurt after her death as he was very close to her. His grades declined in the months following , then after great effort he pulled him self together. On the night before the exam he asked for a photo of his grandmother(whom he called "Mom") , which we want sure if it was a good idea , but we put a little photo for him without him knowing in his pencil case.
On the morning of his exam he was violenty sick on the road side after asking us to stop the car. He got to the exam , finished it and didnt really comment.

We dont understand what went wrong , but this bright young lads future in schooling has all been decided by 1 exam which he done bad in itand really not his fault. Tutor are shocked and said it cant be and there must be a mix up of names . The school also are shocked by the results and cannot understand it and say it can only be "Nerves". Both are supporting us with letters stating his past results and academic brilliance and there shock and dismay.

We wish to appeal but wondered if there was any help or advise out there.

Can any one help ?

Thank you for listening.

A very distressed parent.

You could try with the 12+ exam for entry into year 8.

Hi rajk,

Sorry to hear about your son's results. You'll get more responses if you post in the Appeals section.

All the best.
