is this pass score was introduced this year ? going through this found thatviewtopic.php?f=60&t=32576
there are some possibility even if it is less than passmark..
Did your DD take the Redbridge exam as well as the CSSE? There is absolutely no connection between the two exams; passing one does not qualify a child to apply for a place in the other jurisdiction, so to speak. To get a place at Woodford County High School for Girls (the "WCHS" in the thread you quote), it is necessary to have obtained a good pass in the Redbridge exam.
The minimum qualifying score for Southend High School for Girls and Westcliff High School for Girls (the CSSE girls-only grammar schools within the Borough of Southend) is 303.00. Technically
, there is no minimum score required for Colchester County High School, but I'm afraid that all places in this school will be filled by girls with scores well above the 303 Southend cut-off. Chelmsford County High School is no longer part of the CSSE and has its own exam.
If you are RC or a member of another faith community, you could try St Bernard's in Westcliff if you particularly want an all-girls school; your DD is unlikely to qualify for a selective place but the non-selective admissions last year went down as far as "girls of other faiths", I think. You would have to complete the school's Supplementary Information Form as well as naming it on your CAF.
