my daughter took both medway and kent tests. she did'nt pass the medway test, then passed the kent test.

when applying using the caf we entered a medway grammar school as first preferance as we had intended appealing, followed by 3 kent grammars and a kent high school.

she has not been offered a grammar school place, but the last choice being told all of the schools are over subscribed.

i am confused as to whether all preferences will be looked at in order or just kent schools when appealing to the kent choices.

anyone have any advice or information on our unusual position?

thanks in advance

You can appeal to as many oversubscribed schools at which you have been refused as you wish.

In practice, which appeal is heard first will depend on how appeals are organised locally, and the dates of hearings.

You might, for example, find that all the appeals for your lowest preference grammar school are scheduled first!

But, of course, having one appeal allowed has no bearing upon the next appeal - you could win, or equally loose, all the appeals, and if you won more than one the choice would be back with you.
