Cast your mind back to the deep dark depths of year seven... (assuming most of you are older than this)
remember midYIS tests?
don't know if everyone does them, but we did them in the first month of year 7.
this is purely to satisfy personal curiosity, but can you remember any of your scores?
there were a few different sections eg vocab and maths, and then you got an overall score- can you remember any of them?
the average is 100
I'm in year 8 right now and I got my report back..
I will tell you my scores and i will tell you what everything means.
So we have 5 sections
MidYIS Band Percentile Stanine Standard Score
Vocabulary B 72 6 110.96
Maths A 99.1 9 135.25
Skills A 92 7+ ( Nearly 8) 119.95
Non-Verbal A 91 7 118.35
OVERALL SCORE A 89 7.25 127
This basically shows me i am Significantly above average in Skills and Non-Verbal
And I'm gifted In MATHS
And i am Above average in Vocabulary
I know that D is supposed to be well below average, C is average [but I think the actual average is probably higher], B is above average, A is well above average.
Mathematics: D [I wouldn't be suprised if I got the lowest score in the country tbh]
Non verbal: A [They use this to put you in science sets so I was set 1, but got moved way way down after they realised what a terrible mistake that was]
Skills: D [Always makes me laugh that it's called 'skills' and I'm so well below average in it.]
