What is the cut off mark for Newstead Wood ?

It varies from year to year. They offer to those with the highest scores first, going down the list. There is no "pass mark" as such.

Do you know what the total marks attainable are. DD got 215 and wondering whether to put it down as her first choice.

Don't they give you last year's cut off as a guide?

However, you should put down schools in your order of preference, not in the order in which you think they are likely to be offered. If her score is not high enough, it will just be as if it wasn't on her list.

I just googled, and it looks like the cut off was about 225 last year.

I think the top mark possible is 280 (i.e. 140+140).

The cut off for 2016 entry was a record low of 215. It was higher on offer day, around 225. It hadn't been as low as 215 before. I would be surprised if was as low again but you never know. Typically in the years before 2016 years entry and while they've had an intake of 160, it has shuffled down to 218/219 by start of term. No harm putting it on the CAF form but it is unlikely you'll get a place on first March and it will be a tense wait. Good luck.
