Of the first 135 on the order of merit, 39 (135-96) were either out of catchment or rejected an IC place. The 135 also includes the 24 places given to OOC, the last of which was order of merit 65. .
My next question is - were those only those dds that submitted CCHS on the CAF? Could I lose another 30 by people not selecting CCHS?
Yes, your 1st statement is correct.
I am not 100% sure whether "Order of Merit" includes all the DDs who sat the test or just the one who have CCHS as one of the preference school on the CAF? The admission policy mentioned "Ranked List of Applicants" for the allocation of place to the 120 DDs.
After 3rd March 2014 anyone who have sat the test can still change their mind and apply to CCHS. If their score is high they will go straight to the top of the waiting list (IC or OOC). That the reason why DCs can move down the W/L.
