If the unused places have already been allocated, where does all the movement come from? We are all advised to accept our offer while we wait in the CI list. If we are all sitting on our offers how does the movement happen. Am I being dense?
This confuses me too, I understand the private schools will create some movement, but there must be some of us sat with other peoples first choices and vice versa and perhaps because of the distances involved or other criteria we are both stuck with second choice.
I'm very happy with our second choice, but my daughter desperately wanted our first choice, her second choice is the indie she also got into. The reality is that we could accept both offers and there will be no financial implication providing we let the independent school know by the start of the summer term if we no longer want that place. I'm sure there are other people also in that position - in fact I know there are.
