Not 'out of' - these are standardised scores. The score tells you more about your DC's relative position, which in the normal course of events (given a 'normal' normal distribution, so to speak), would be well up in the top 4% of candidates. I don't know exactly how the scores are calculated there, though.

It is not my text. This is copy-paste from school letter. .... achieved an offer score of 268 out of a possible 282.

Read the copy and pasted quotation on the previous page. Last year they offered out to 266 and above. It has hovered around that mark for several years. I can tell you for a fact that the school will not divulge any more information on that so all you can do is apply and hope for the best.

MY son achieved 262.
I am really keen to know if this score will achieve a score based on previous years stats at least in the waiting list?
Thanks

It may be worth asking the school's admissions officer if the quoted music and technology cut-off scores for allocation of the 24 places under each criteria are for national offer day or for the start of the autumn term, as waiting lists can move a fair bit between March and September. You can probably send an email.
