My DS obtained score of 108.56 for Ilford County. 373 passed for only 180 places. Why don't Redbridge anonymise all scores so parents have a realistic chance of knowing whether to put the school higher up the preference list. An example being how many scored more or less than your child would be extremely helpful.
That is the number passing, I think, who either sat the exam at ICHS or sat it elsewhere but asked to have their raw score included in the Redbridge cohort? Admittedly, the 'extras' should
ad pretty minimal, given that Redbridge makes it crystal clear in its guidance for parents that unless you live within the Common Catchment Area, your child's chance of a Redbridge grammar school place is effectively zero, but given the number of people posting on this site who have obviously never even looked at their home LA's secondary transfer guidance, let alone that for the OOC schools they want to apply to, you might be in luck and find that a number of those boys live out of area, or are resident within the CCA but will choose to put a CSSE school / Latymer / QE etc first on their CAF.
