Put the school that you (and your daughter) think is the best school for her as your first preference. If your daughter does not meet the criteria for that school then the admissions authority will move on to the next preference. They will allocate the highest school on your CAF that you have met the criteria for. This is called 'equal preference' and so should not discriminate against you for the order in which you list the school on your CAF.

As your dd got a very good and guaranteed score (u live in slough as well), so put the order of preference as per your choice forgetting whether she would get it or not

Depends on whether you want catholic education for child and whether you are a catholic If Bernard's is oversubscribed you may loose out on that criteria and waste a preference....

St Bernard's has never ever been oversubscribed on the faith criteria, and we have been involved for many many years. The only reason it might be this year is historically it has taken from 111, whereas the others have wanted higher scores. People submitting their CAF this year with scores of 111-say 115 might see it as a useful guarantee as opposed to winging it with the others.

:D One thing is guaranteed with 11+ is that there are no guarantees! I assume if people do this then this year they may lose out via over subscription......

Well yes, but that's because in prior years they never believed their children would just get 112 or some such score , so never applied in the first instance. :D

Good luck everyone, very happy to not be involved this year :D
