Hi, apologies for sounding a dimwit but I have been trawling through the threads to establish how the email confirmation system for the Southend area works. Am I right in thinking that you have to wait for the email to be sent from who knows where to see what school has been allocated? There has been some conflicting threads about this and I am super confused. Some say you can log in from midnight others say you have to wait for the email. As my stress levels are going up hourly I could do with some help on this. At the moment I am panicking about even applying but realise I must have as my DD sat the 11+ in November. Is it just me or are there others out there who are starting to feel they are in some sort of Dr Who parallel universe where time has been suspended and our bodies are being drained of life ?
