CAF application deadline is 31st October and for some schools like Henrietta Barnet School and Sutton schools there is second level 11+ test if kids get through the first level 11+ test. These second level test some of them in November or January.
Do we need to include the school in CAF based on first level test result? What happens if kid wont gets through second level test.
Totally puzzled with the different scenarios. If some one provides good info on how this works? Based on this we would like to traget specific schools and not to try every school is eligible.
If your DC has qualified for the second round, you know that they are one of 350 / 500 or however many who are eligible to apply to the school and if you want to have a chance of a place, you must put it on your CAF and
your DC must take the second round test.
School applications are dealt with under the 'equal preference' system, which means that each school you apply to considers your application according to its published admissions criteria and in complete ignorance of where you put it on your CAF or what other schools you have applied to.
So, say your DD qualifies for the second round at HBS and you put this school first; if your DD does well enough in the second part to be ranked in the top 93, HBS will tell your LA that you can be offered a place, and your LA will allocate your DD a place at the school as it is your first preference. However, if she does not do sufficiently well in the second part, she cannot be offered a place there and your LA will look down your CAF and allocate your DD a place at the next school down on your list which has told them that she qualifies for one.
Hope this helps
