Many thanks for the advice.
We are just on the edge and everything depends of the results.
We went to the opening evening, trying to get as much info as possible and there is no clear cut. Everything depends of the results and the performance within our are. As always, it will require hard work and can only hope for the best.

For Bucks, as long as your DC gets the qualifying score or above, score is irrelevant. So performance as such is not important. If qualified then it’s all about catchment/distance.

There is LOTS of information about the distances the school went to - have you checked how far you are? It's a shame to enter the test if you have no chance of a place because you live too far away.

Look here:

Does it matter what score a child gets?

To qualify in the Buckinghamshire Secondary Transfer Test a child needs to achieve a Secondary Transfer Test Score (STTS) of 121 or above.When applying their admission rules grammar schools do not use STTS scores to rank order children so children with higher scores are not at an advantage for entry to grammar school.Grammar school entry is entirely dependent on whether or not a score of 121 has been achieved. Beyond requiring a qualification score of 121 or above each grammar school sets its own criteria for admissions (please refer to each individual grammar school’s admission policy for details).



I'm not in Bucks, but in intrigued as to where you were given the misinformation that the score, over and above a pass score, matters? Both the Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools site and the county council website are very clear on how places are allocated.
