According to this page https://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/schoo ... rd-11-plus it's a consortium of 4 schools with about 630 places available, so it's unlikely that only 360 passed otherwise the schools would be half empty. Also, OP, I wouldn't take schoolgate gossip too seriously. In a small school a small change in the number passing makes a huge difference in percentage terms, and pass rates could easily vary enormously from year to year.

I am thinking of same student will be appeared on each schools if they qualified for single school around Trafford mainly becasue of this year all these 4 schools had to sit for same CEM exam.
so i am sure shcools will have to lower the pass mark otherwise from where do they take students ?

also this year Loretto already lowerd the passed mark to 325 .

So that's qualified for Sale. From the link above you have to tick a box to share the results with other schools, so presumably not everyone does, and 360 who passed wanted their scores used for Sale. They will set the pass mark so that they get enough children to fill the schools.

Yes true, but my point is this year they won't get enough students as overall students who passed for these trafford schools are 340 to 360 and there are over 600 spaces available on all these 4 Traffford grammer schools,

So the onlyway they would get students is to reduce the pass mark or take students below pass marks.

Hi,

Where is the information from that only 360 children passed the 2017 CEM test? Is this valid?

Thanks :D

I have a daughter taking the entrance exam in September this year so the above figure concerned me. A little google shows me that 949 passed the entrance exam in September. It was around 700 when my son took it the previous year. Perhaps it was actually easier!

Yes, but that's just hard facts and statistics from a source which is legally bound to tell you the truth. Not pearls of wisdom from school gate gossip. So you can't be 100%... :lol:
