Hi,

First post on this site.. and I wonder if any parent can help me with a massive dilemma I have!

Our DS sat the test a couple of weeks ago at Adams Grammar School and when I registered him to sit the test I ticked the box on the application form to indicate our interest in QMGS in Walsall.

The issue is that as AGS do not publish the score achieved and they have stated on their website that we will not receive a separate letter from QMGS ..... how can we make an informed decision as to which school he has a better chance of obtaining a place at?

Has any parent been able to obtain their DS's score from QMGS when the test was sat at AGS?

Hope there are parents out there that can help...
Thank you.

Hello :)

Not in your area, but I think you should receive information separately re QMGS? Although it would be based on the same raw score, your DS's standardised score for each school would be different, as he won't be being compared with exactly the same cohort (unless literally everyone who sits at Adams also opts to share with QMGS and vice versa).
