Slightly delayed perhaps, but don't think there is a post on this from this year's test so, in order to help future users, please provide the following information:

Age (e.g. 10y3m)

VR (Verbal Reasoning): ? / out of 106 + standardised score
NR (Numerical Reasoning) : ? / 40 + std score
NVR: ? / 53 + std score

Total Standardised Score: ?

Previous years’ data about raw scores vs standardised scores won’t really help as the difficulty and cohort for each year are different.

I’m also not sure many if anyone will have their raw scores.

You can get raw scores from emailing Bexley Selection Test with name/candidate number. On the Kent forum lots of parents have requested raw scores and posted for all to see.

Score matters a lot more in Kent because of the superselectives and what seems to be a fixed pass mark. In Bexley, you have the 180 top (which obviously is relative), a shifting pass mark, and most places allocated on pass + distance. I must admit I can't get very interested in the raw scores even for Kent; you get them doing the best they can and hope for the best...

Am I right in thinking that the raw scorers are the actual number of correct answers?

If so, other than a general interest, do you need to know this for any other reason? (Serious question, genuinely not being snipey)

Perhaps for transparency, with regards to Kent couldn't help feel the work against a Bell Curve, which may be manipulated, e.g. there was increase in boys passing this year in Kent, but not girls.

11+ systems have always adjusted results to reflect the fact that boys develop a bit later than girls, haven't they? But there are hardly any mixed sex grammars in Kent anyway, are there, so little competition for places.

Boys and girls are not scored differently. Standardisation does not take gender into account. Only age.

Presumably there was no change at all in the number of boys sitting the test, etc?

So that's an urban myth/ outdated? That does make sense. I was told it with great confidence when I was growing up (and also more recently by other parents) but had noticed there was no indication from any tutors/ official sites that it was the case.
