Yes, first prefs for West Mids grammars Sep 2010, published in one of the B'ham papers. What's interesting is that there were "only" 2700 first prefs for the KEs - about a thousand less than took the exam. You can see that the competition is actually only about a quarter of what people would like you to believe ("11,000 applications for B'ham grammars" etc.).
I bet almost all their candidates are "borderline" and about 1% over the pass mark
. And how do they know? Do they go round everyone after the test and get feedback? I suppose they might, but I'd be surprised. Let us know if they contact you next March!
Anyway; NVR is one area where I think you absolutely can't translate "conventional" test results to the KE test. Our daughter was brilliant at NVR - often got 95-100% in practice tests and in fact somewhat better than me, and I'm very good at that sort of thing! Before the Warks tests I was expecting her to get about 135 for English, 125 for Maths and probably about 125 NVR. I was pretty much spot on for English and Maths but her NVR was awful, and her combined Maths/NVR score for the KE test suggests she got something very similar there. So I wouldn't fret unduly about it - the NVR in the KE test is obviously quite different from "normal" NVR, and practice/mock results won't tell you anything useful about it.
