Hi

If you have a conditional offer for KES sixth form (external applicant) does that mean you definitely get in if you achieve the minimum required 380 QCA points plus A grades in chosen subjects?

Or does it depend on how your results compare to those of other applicants?

Thanks

As far as I'm aware, a conditional offer becomes firm when the grades are achieved, it won't be withdrawn. However, at least one lad who would have been in DD's year and was at KES from year 7 didn't get the required grades so couldn't go into the sixth form. I'd therefore assume that if a student doesn't get the grades then he or she wouldn't get a place.

Hope it's good news for you!

Thank you... just can't work out from the admissions policy what the conditions actually are!!!

As a state school I believe the school is obliged to keep the same conditions for all candidates, so they should be those specified in the admissions documents. If you look at page 5 of this:

http://www.kes.net/wp-content/uploads/2 ... n-Pack.pdf

It clarifies the entry criteria, which seem to be the ones you're quoting.

The official admissions document talks about the subject class sizes being taken into account before conditional offers are made so once you've got a conditional offer then it's simply (?!) a case of getting the correct grades. Further offers can be made after GCSE results come out, to those who didn't receive conditional offers. The relevant bit is on page 7 of this:

However, I'm only writing this as a parent, rather than an expert!
