just phoned to see where we were in the waiting list and told that no second round offers are being made - does this means there are a lot of appeals?

No, my understanding is that appeals are admitted over and above PAN, so I assume that no one offered in the first round has declined, which is pretty surprising (an understatement) as I'd expect that places would be declined in favour of Withington/MHSG?

That is not unusual as they often over offer by a small margin as they know that some places will be declined in favour of independent or other grammar places. In year groups with lots of siblings they often dont get to a second allocation as they can pretty much guarantee that the sibling places will be taken up.

We turned down our offer for AGSB and I know another family who have also turned down an offer so unless they have offered over PAN or are expecting a lot of appeals there should be some movement on the waiting list.
Does anybody know what the OOC minimum qualifying score was this year? Knowing what it was might give some people an idea of where they might be on the waiting list.

Edited: just realised the thread is about AGGS and not AGSB.....must read properly next time.

Keep the faith.
6 of us (to my knowledge) were offered a place with less than a month to go as we stayed on the waiting list (didn't appeal etc as no reasonable grounds other than vexation IMO)
