Has anyone ever heard of someone contacting the admissions authority and being allowed to delete one of their preferences? There's 2 months to go until admissions day and I'm panicking!

I know the closing date was 23 Oct and understand there must be a cut off point or the process will go on and on but wonder if they ever bend the rules.

The only way to find out is to contact admissions but I'm not sure they have any scope to bend the rules.

From the Herts website re late applications
Quote:
9 February 2010. Any applications made after this date will not be offered a school place until week commencing 26 April 2010

I think the pan-London co-ordination leaves little room for flexibility. Here is the pan-London timetable from page 15 of Barnet's arrangements for 2010/11:
  • 23 October 2009: Closing date for applications
  • 16 November 2009: Deadline for the transfer of application information by the Home LA to the Pan-London Register (PLR).
  • 11 December 2009: Deadline for the upload of late applications to the PLR.
  • 3 February 2010: Deadline for the transfer of potential offer information from the Maintaining LAs to the PLR.
  • 16 February 2010: Final ALT file to PLR
  • 24 February 2010 Deadline for On-line ALT file to portal
  • 1 March 2010: Offer letters posted.
Quote from page 11:
Barnet council wrote:
Barnet Council will accept late applications only if they are late for a good reason. Examples of what will be considered as good reason include: when a single parent has been ill for some time, or has been dealing with the death of a close relative; a family has just moved into the area or is returning from abroad (proof of ownership or tenancy of a property within this LA will be required in these cases). Other circumstances will be considered and each case decided on its own merits.

(This is apparently pan-London boilerplate.)
