Hello, someone might have raised a similar query already, my daughter has passed Burham school test. But the problem is we live around 18 miles from the school. It seems some distance criteria is applied even for non-chachement.

So just wanted to know what are our chances to get the place or how can we increase our chances.

Any advice on this will be highly apprecited.

Regards

This might help :

http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/11-plu ... rofile.php

But it only goes up to 2009 - I don't know if anyone has 2010 allocations?

BGS has been getting more popular - but 'all offered' on these years shows they went out a long way in all likelihood.

Good luck!

you may not be 18 miles away as per bucks system of calculating distance from home to school. check the link behind 'check the distance on this website' on page http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/11-plu ... rofile.php . use guidelines mentioned on the page while calculating distance

Thanks everyone for useful and positive information.

Does this mean that we might have to wait until Aug next year?
