Hi again watfordmum66
I should make clear that we are happy with our allocated school, which we ranked 2nd, but not as happy as if DC had been offered our 1st ranked school (Clement Danes). This is because CD would be much more suited to my DC's personality and more importantly, to my DC's needs.
However, I also realise that we are VERY lucky to be in the position that we are : for months I had terrible visions of not getting any of the 3 choice schools, and I had very big worries that my DC would be allocated a non-ranked shool.
My DC's results have just brought home how incredibly proud of my DC I am, particularly as my DC did a "crash course" of VR within about 5 weeks, just before the exam.
So, the best bit of news to us really was how well DC had done. That, in itself was the best news of it all.
So, here I am asking these questions on this wonderful forum, still anxious ... lol ... some people are never grateful ! ...
Guess we shall just have to play the "waiting game", but questions and worries don't stop popping into my head ... lol. Add those together with an already confused person, and it makes for a VERY dizzy, confused person ...
Just so glad I found this absolutely wonderful forum - it provides so much reassurance, knowledge and warmth, and for that I am EXTREMELY grateful.
Thank you to you ALL.
