There is a freedom of information request here that has a lot of information about the previous admissions round.

Quote:
Dear Redbridge Borough Council,

Thank you for this, it really helps. Judging my last years admissions it looks like we would be around 80 on the waiting list :-( which seems a bit far fetched in terms of getting a place. At least now I can manage my daughters expectations!

A standardised score does not tell you how hard or easy a test was. Nor does it tell you how may questions you answered correctly. A standardised score tells you how your child performed in relation to the other candidates.

A standardised score of 100 would usually indicate the average score placing you in the middle of the range of candidates.

You need to keep in mind that the children sitting these tests are likely to be much stronger than the national average. Even so, within this stronger cohort they are being ranked. If they sat the same test and got the same raw score but with a different set of children, they would obtain a different standardised score.


thanks for the explanation.

However, if the exam was difficult this year then there could be more students near the mean score and hence the cut-off score could be lesser than 110.46? Is that a possibility? I am aware that the number of students who might not accept the offer at Woodford county would affect the cut-off score. However I have heard from multiple sources that the paper was relatively difficult this year and hence was wondering if the cut off score could be lesser than last year - well, just hoping :-(.

I’m hoping that is the case too! In previous years some with lower scores have made the cut-off but could that be because the number of children sitting the exams were less?

The standardised score accepted could go up or down depending on a number of factors including:-

How many children sat the test
Their admission priority . (The number of in catchment, out of catchment and qualified PP etc)
How many children listed the school on their CAF, who cannot be offered a higher preference

The difficulty of the test is less of a factor as it has been accounted for in the standardised scores. A score of 110 would put you approximately in the top 25% regardless of if the test was easy or hard. So last year the school could accommodate most applicants who scored in the top 25% (110) and were in catchment.

This year is as yet unknown -it could be the top 20% or 30% which would be represented by different standardised scores.

thanks, this really helps to understand how the system works.

In the email which Redbridge has sent with the results, they have said

"Please note: information in relation to the 11+ test results for 2021 admission, will be published on the Redbridge website from 1 January 2021."

Does anyone know what kind of information will be published from 1st Jan.?

Possibly the same information as that on the website currently, regarding last year's statistics?

https://www.redbridge.gov.uk/schools/redbridge-11-plus/

The information provided is in relation to registrations received for the 11 plus and for those who sat the test for the Redbridge Grammar Schools for entry in September 2020.

Thank you for this. I guess it all depends on how many sat the test, how many put Woodford as their first choice and how many are OOC.
