Congratulations to your daughter and you.
I found your other post. I'm really pleased for you that she did so well. Takes the pressure off your younger children too.
I actually moved house last year to make sure i was in the catchment area for his second choice school. Not everyone can do that - luckily I had a bit of help from my mum!
I was also lucky in that the tutor had 1 space left. It was only 8 weeks to the exam so I figure someone had dropped out. Even though he only went 4 times I got some advise from the tutor as I really didnt have a clue and what I found on the net was patchy to say the least. Unfortunately I didnt find this site then.
I really don't remember the exams being so difficult all those years ago - I passed and went to CCHS. But everybody took it in those days so it didnt seem to be such a big thing.
I'm sure you have a very happy house now and Good luck to your daughter for September
