I was wondering if Birmingham parents had ever received a letter from Birmingham Admissions, confirming their applications?

I applied online on 17 October and received an email confirmation. This stated that my application was received and I should receive a letter; and gave a number to call if I did not.
Checking the e-admissions page, my daughter's name is there for her application with the note: 'Closed' next to it. I'm assuming that means the round of admissions is closed and going through the allocation process.

I have called them three times now asking about my postal letter of confirmation - which never arrived. The first time, I was told they had not been sent out yet and the other two times I was told not to worry as the application had gone through. Call me paranoid (or maybe I have too much experience of local councils :roll: ) but I am still worried.

I wanted to know - has anyone else received a confirmation letter in the post? And when you log in, does it say, 'Closed' next to your child's name?

Thank you.

Yep, it does say closed against it and I did receive a confirmation letter too. Don't think you should worry.

By all means, chase it up UM, but, you have applied by email and everything sounds right on there - that is the most important thing - the letter is a piece of paper confirming what you have put in the email - the letter may not have been sent, got lost in the post etc but it doesn't change your email application. Don't let people panic you at this point!

Thanks for the replies.

I had emailed them and called them 3 times and was just being 'put off' and told everything was ok.
But this morning I spoke to them on the phone and they have said they will send a letter out to me in the post today.
So hopefully I will get it and have my mind put at rest (a little bit!) :D

Hi guys. Can I ask which 'Birmingham Admissions' are you guys talking about? My daughter will be entered for tests at Wolverhampton Consortium and Birmingham Consortium for entry in Sept2015. I thought the test registrations can be handed in by June for Wolverhampton and July for Birmingham!!!? :?
