My DD is at Kendrick and we have just received an email asking for our comments on their changes to proposed admissions. Along with the designated area which they are introducing for 2012, is the proposal to hold the test on 1st October 2012 in order to comply with a new draft Admission code which requires parents to know the result of their child's test before they have to fill in the CAF.
Sounds hopeful that the dreaded wait will be a thing of the past.
Presumably you find out how your daughter ranked and make and educated guess as to what your chances are of a place before potentially wasting a space on the CAF Form. So sensible!
