Hello,

This is a genuine question. Now that the pass mark has raised to 330, I was wondering, for those who scored 330 and above but are below what will likely be the required score to be in a selective and super selective school, will they end up in the comprehensive or mixed ability schools ? I'm aware this is a long winded question but was curious about it.

TIA

Only some grammars are superselective; others select on distance once you have a pass.

Many thanks for that. It's a relief to hear this.

I thought it was based solely on a high score. For example, I was told Dartford Grammar for Girls was (I think 376 or so last year and will likely increase) and my niece has her heart set on going there but scored 363. She lives in Dartford. I was concerned for her. We won't know until March but fingers-crossed she'll be fine.

Wilmington Grammar for Girls is in the Dartford area and selects on distance.

Dartford is one of the parishes for Wilmington Grammar. If so then a pass may be enough for Wilmington, do you know what other choices were on the CAF?

I think she also included Wilmington Grammar but I don't know what the other two options were unfortunately.

Last year (Sep 2019 intake) the cut off point to get to DGGS for girls from selected parishes (Dartford is one of the) was 359 so she would have made it. However we were already told that it's expected to go up this year again (Sep 2020 intake).
