Please see the variances in numbers of parents putting each school as a pref 1-6 between 2014 and last year.
I chucked in Arthur Terry and Fairfax numbers because of the probable link between these choices and KEA and BV in particular.
The one draw dropper number is the 500 extra people that stuck KEFW down as a pref last year - up to a wopping 1877 from 1377.
Despite all changes over last couple of years the large change in cut off score between 2013 and 15 change in cut varies by average 1.6% either way with biggest being KEFW rising 3% to 232 this year from 224. Why such a large absolute increase in pref for KEFW is interesting??
Only two to decrease numbers in 2015 were Bishop Vesey and Handsworth Girls.I am going to take a huge punt and suggest that 2015 was a complete one off for KEFW that will not be sustained this year. I am going to have a bang at the KEFW cut off score coming down to 227 this year.
