Morning All,

I'm just wondering whether any of you 11+ aficionados have any information as to whether the introduction of a catchment area this year has had any impact on applications? Did more or fewer people from within catchment apply? Is there any info on how many places might go to catchment area kids (I appreciate that one is probably too early to answer!)?

All I can say is that the were such a huge number of children taking the test that for someone who lives 10 minutes from school but outside catchment it's almost impossible to work out how many places my son might be 'fighting' over!

Wasn't there an earlier thread about boys who were registered to take the test at another school being redirected to Adams? Given some of the distances mentioned I assume that at least some of the boys there on the test day will not actually be putting the school first on their CAF, if at all?

I know boys who travelled to Adams from Solihull to take the test - and while there, they met boys from London :shock:

Unfortunately because Adams do their test so early it does se to get used as a mock by some, so it really get skewed. I'm just stressing about falling JUST outside the catchment area and how much impact it really is likely to have!! I hope we're not all trying to get just one or two places between us!!

I guess the answer is to try not to stress because you won't know until Offers Day. As you are applying for a selective school, you need a good plan B anyway because anyone can have an off day on test day.
