Thanks Etienne. A bit disappointing they don't have a human remark but we will ask for a score breakdown by section/paper to see if that sheds any light as to what might have happened. It is very difficult to present an appeal case without knowing the facts, although I suppose they might release them once they know we attend to appeal in March? I haven't read that far ahead yet as it is quite overwhelming and am trying to deal with one step at a time.

Have you received anything back yet? I received a similar email to your on Wednesday and responded that evening to them. It would be nice to get information by this Wednesday...

I think under GDPR they have upto a month to respond to a subject access request.

Hi there,

Don't want to rain on your parade but in 2014 (cem exam) and before the advent of gdpr I asked for this info. I got back a sheet of a4 with seven numbers on it. A score for each section but crucially it didn't tell me what it was out of so was completely useless.

You may be more lucky but the 30 day wait may effectively be for 'nothing'.

We did ask for details on what the section was out of and what the section was but I have no idea if they will provide that info. We are still awaiting the response to our SAR.

Coincidentally, we had parents' eve this week. School told us DS sat a SATS paper from summer 2016 in the first part of year 6 and gave us his scores - 109 for Maths, 108 SPAG, Reading Greater Depth (teacher assessed as he missed the test for some reason), writing - teacher assessed but v strong expected with elements of GD. This is good right? Hoping this will help as evidence for when the time comes as this is early in y6.

So, we have had a reply. We now know his raw scores for Verbal, Maths and Non Verbal plus his age standardised scores for each of those sections and a final weighted score.

Can anyone help me interpret these or give any insight into where the pass mark might be expected to be?

Thanks in advance.

Hi

Might be worth checking out Gloucestershire region & there's a topic called standardised scores that might be a starting point....

Hi

Just a little update on us. We found out earlier this month that my son's eyesight issue is much worse and more complex than we thought. We were shocked to discover he is not seeing out of his right eye at all (vision suppressed) and the Optometrist said this would cause him significant issues being right-handed. He said it is also much harder for him to concentrate as he has to compensate for the right eye and make effort to focus and flitting across several sheets which are not directly in front of him would be problematic for him (he is +10 long-sighted with severe astigmatisms). Bearing in mind the answer grid sheet, it is quite possible he is gone out of alignment.

At least we seem to have a explanation so for that I am grateful. He has been referred to a further specialist for an in depth appointment in a couple of weeks and they will be writing a report for the GP. He said that with his eyesight issues, adjustments need to made in future for tests. At least they will put this in writing. I am disappointed that my son will have this ongoing issue with his eyesight but I am hoping that the medical report will carry a good deal of weight in the appeal and at least we are aware for future types of testing. He is doing very well in his mock SATs but the layout of those papers is much more straightforward so this is the first test he has ever failed at.

Does anyone have any advice as to what should be included in the medical report? This is all new territory for us and I need to ensure it is in order before we submit the appeal.

Hi

Might be worth posting in region (Gloucestershire??) too?

I'm sure someone will be along with some valuable info to assist.

Best of luck

Posting again in the hope for some input from the experts on here.

One thing we did notice in response to the SAR re. results breakdown, despite assuring us that it was all computer read and no margin for error, the results came through with my son's name spelled wrong. This has not filled us with confidence at all. If they can transpose letters, we feel they could possibly transpose numbers. We have repeated a request for a physical person to check the paper in our case as the integrity of the data is now in question - they have refused. Any thoughts on this? Where can we go from here? I have lost all faith in the data if my son's name is incorrect on the results table.

In other news, we now have a medical report - brief though it is. I don't want to share on here but if someone knowledgable could have a look and see if it is the kind of thing required, I would be happy to pm.

Many thanks,
