We had our Appeal hearing today.
Panel was very nice to us. We were asked to present our case. Me and my husband explained the reason for appeal, our situation, academic proofs etc.
We were given enough time. I think we both didn't talk more than 10 minutes in total.
Then one of the panel member asked other members to ask us any questions but all of them said we do not have any questions to ask.

We were told that outcome of appeal will be posted to us next week.

But I am now worried as none of panel members asked questions?
Did this happen to anyone who appealed in past? Was appeal successful?
I am worried!

You must of presented your case well, and it left no room to ask anything as you had already covered those thing that they wanted to know about

I would not worry, our panel asked very few questions, about three in total, and we were successful.

Good Luck


Cindy

Let me know how you got on.

I only ask questions of the parents in two circumstances.

1. If there is some matter that is unclear
2. If there's something I think the parent may not have mentioned that would help their case - it could have been hinted at. Parents often think something that is important to the panel is unimportant.

So in other words, you probably said all that was needed, and made the case nicely.

The ombudsman much prefers the panel to ask some questions, and to show an interest in the parents' case.

It's unusual, I would have thought, for nobody to ask anything.

However, I would agree that "j" cannot draw any conclusions from this. It's likely to mean that the case was very clear.

I should add that I'm the quietest member of the panel - I listen & make copious notes, and watch the parties carefully. The other two ask most of the questions.
