thank you so much, that makes so much more sense to me now.
You may or may not know the answer, however how many times a LA and the school go back and forth for the places (I am referring particulary the schools which dont have catchment criteria), in the sense
a) LA sends list of candidates to different schools
b) Assume, a DC gets selected in all the three schools that they listed in their CAF
1. Will the LA inform the school (listed lower in the CAF of this particular DC) that this DC will not be offered that school as the DC has secured his top preferred school?
2. Since one DC is out, will the school move on to the next DC in their rank list and inform the newly offered DC's LA?
How many times will it go on like this. I am confused.
