Hi, I am new to this forum. I have been reading the comments on the site for some months. My daughter has just received her results. She did not get into her local grammar Woodford county. Shes really gutted, she really believed she would pass!! i must say I have hidden my feelings from her pretty well, saying that she worked very hard, and if she didnt get in then it was not the right school for her. However I feel completely devasted, and am now thinking it was my fault. I enrolled her in tuition last May, 8 months before the exams. Most people in our area start about 2 years before! Maybe if i had, she would have stood a better chance!! Her total position in was 304 out of 872 girls. Is there any way i can ask the LEA to review her papers and check they did not make a mistake? PLEASE PLEASE any parents who have been through this, i would really welcome your advice and support. She was 11 in Jan. She is such a bright girl, and was scoring 93-95% in VR NFER practice papers.
Any comments would be appreciated.
