My son sat for the Bexley Test and these are the marks, can anyone explain how are these marks calculated please? What are the total marks for each subject?

It is a standardised score with a maximum of 280 (it's not out of 280 though. There is another thread from a couple of days ago with some discussion of this. It has 214 in the title!

They are standardised scores.

They are not out of anything (although as scary mum has said, the maximum score achieved will be somewhere around 280).

From data given elsewhere, we know that a standardised score of 214 or above means that a candidate is within the top 32%; assuming that the overall score is the average of the three, your DS's standardised score puts him well up within the 1800+ who passed (although not in the top 180?). However, if he is not in the top 180, I understand that the score above the pass mark is irrelevant, as places are allocated on other criteria such as distance and sibling link?

The Bexley website says:

Quote:
The total score is weighted, by adding 50% of the verbal ability score, 25% of the numerical ability score and 25% of the non verbal ability score.

Therefore you have to add the numerical ability and the non-verbal scores together, divide by 2, add the verbal ability score, and divide by 2 again to reach your overall weighted score.
