Why can’t the OFFICIAL ELEVEN PLUS AUTHORITIES allow some children to re-sit the eleven plus?
At the GCSE stage children can re-sit an examination to improve a grade. Surely it would be relatively easy to allow some children the opportunity of a re-sit? Of course in the eleven plus experience parents have the ability to appeal an eleven plus decision. But there is no opportunity for some children to be able to be given a second chance.
The questions could come from the same bank of questions.
Some candidates could improve their marks – and thus avert an educational tragedy.
In some cases the children may have to enter as private candidates but the authorities would no doubt institute a complex set of re-sit regulations.
