Hi everyone . Not long to go now...ten days and counting. Nervous but just want all the waiting to finally be over. DD seems a lot calmer ! Guess everyone else feeling the same. Good luck to you all.

Which school is your daughter hoping for? Our son came 324th, which is a miracle as he had a total meltdown and didn't finish the VR by a long way, so we have a really nervous wait. He just wants to know where he's going so he can get used to the idea! I wish the allocation day and the 11 plus results day were a bit closer together. Six weeks feels like forever!

Hi . We put skipton first then crossleys and north hx third. She was ranking 181. Then two local comps fourth and fifth.

Hi we are nine miles. 7 non selection appeals were upheld apparently so we are hopeful but just want the piece of paper in our hands !

I don't understand why in some areas you can choose five schools and in some only three. It's an odd system. We put the two Calderdale grammars and then the local comp. If we'd had five choices, we could have gone for another grammar as well.

We are in Bradford LEA. I think 5 choices is a relatively new addition to the CAF.

An appeal for not being successful in the test.

Bradford introduced 5 choices for the first time this admission cycle. Calderdale is introducing 5 choices from September 2013. http://www.calderdale.gov.uk/education/ ... cheme.html
