You guys rock! I must have read it on their website and forgotten where I'd seen it. I'm going to MGS Open Morning on Friday. I was told yesterday (by a parent) that if you get 390 score you will get in no matter where you live - whereas I was under the impression that you had to be in one of the 'named areas' (which we are not) to have a hope of getting in, I need to check that info out.
I think you are right. We are going through the same thing, DS wants to go there but we don't live in one of the named areas. This is their over-subscription criteria;
