Dear Worried Dad
My child put Langley and Herschel in the CAF form.
Someone scared me that if we put Langley above Herschel, then Herschel won't offer you a place.
I do not belive in this but this sounds very scary.
The fact that people are talking about separate results for Langley and Herschel results compounds to my fears.
I'm afraid what you were told was
The only way schools can find out which other school's a candidate has applied for is if they are a part of a consortium. Which both Langley and Herschel are - the Slough Consortium (SC). They are a group of 3 schools which form an independant consortium and therefore can share information - due to the fact that they insist that the school you put down first will be the school you you sit the exam - therefore they know which school you put down first.
The SC cannot, however, find out if you put down, say Tiffin, as we have - as they have no access to this information.
Hope this helps somewhat - sorry for your predicament.
