Hi, there's no concrete answer to this. All of the schools in the consortium differ every year. It will be standardised, I read somewhere online that it was 303 one year. But one school in Chelmsford made the pass mark 339. It depends on whether the school is oversubscribed or not. As a general rule of thumb, your child needs to score 85%+

It does indeed change every year. I've spent a long time trying to find the answer to this, there's nothing concrete out there but if i find anything more I'll let you know

Hi there, the score does indeed change every year. Both the English and maths papers are weighted 50% each. Results are mathematically standardised, and the final mark is determined based on the overall performance of all candidates.

This will be explained in more detail once the results are decided and sent out, to help you better understand how your child performed.

I found this online which might help

Say if a child gets 40 marks in English and 40 marks in Maths then the standardised score is 321.193566

English Marks       Eng Avg             Eng SD

40                         33.174               8.665

Maths Marks        Maths Avg         Maths SD

40                         38.349              10.709

Eng Std              Maths Std

111.8165032       102.3125409

TotalMarks         CSSE Score

80                       321.193566

English Std score =((40-33.174)/8.665*15)+100 = 111.8165032

Maths Std score =((40-38.349)/10.709*15)+100 = 102.3125409

Total Score =1.5*(111.8165032+102.3125409 ) = 321.193566

haha took me some time to digest this, but I think I've got it ;-) This could be an 11+ question in its own right
