Hi, My DS got 116 in Slough consortium test and we live 36 miles away from Herschel school in Bedfordshire. Can some one suggest if I can put Herschel in my preference. Unfortunately I have only 3 choice. My DS got 238 in QE boys and Next week he will go for Buck test. So I can either put like,
1. QE Boys
2. Aylsbury Boys
3. Herschel.

OR

1. QE Boys
2. Aylsbury Boys
3. Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School.

Please suggest me. I need to fill CAF by 31st October.
Thanks
Confidentdad

Before the distance criteria was adopted by Herschel and the move towards Herschel as a preference I would have said (going on historical data) you had a strong chance of an offer. Now there are 70 places on score and the rest (50 places) on achieving the qualification mark /distance it is much less certain.
The question is whether a score of 116 would rank among the top 70 scores for children who would be allocated Herschel from their preference list. Unfortunately I cannot give you an answer on this..... we have a post that says Herschel went down to at least 114 in the second round (but I am unsure whether this was under the distance criteria). It may be worth asking Herschel what score the top 70 went down to in 2012.... they can only say no.
