On the registration form you had to tick which school(s) you wished the exam to be entered for, so for example, if you lived in Wolverhampton you may consider traveling to Adams or QMS and tick both schools.
Out of interest, what are your travel plans should your dc go to wgs?
He will be getting the WGS bus from Priorslee
The cut off for the letters which have gone out this year is 309 from what I gather, we scored 309 after difficulties on the day and have received the strongly urge to apply letter though don't expect to get a place. I should think 320plus is in with a very good chance. That said while I think a lot would've taken QM as a mock for Brum just due for proximity of the testing centre, I'm not sure whether that applies to Newport ie you might travel from Brum to Walsall to take a test but would you go to Shropshire, though clearly I'm hoping lots did!
I'm not sure how much weight I'd attach to any info floating around there about scores and rankings, there are so many Chinese whispers where Adams has been concerned, I heard that 3 letters had gone out, namely "strongly urge" to apply, " May wish" to apply and "don't bother", and was over the moon to get the strongly urge, however there are only two and the strongly urge letter incorporates the waiting list. How long is the waiting list going to be, how many letters have gone out over the 97 places?
Sadly none of us know until March though I know of 6 boys with scores over 345 all of whom plan to accept places if offered.
That's interesting I wonder why they chose 309 as the cut off if a score of 301 was entered last year (it must be a boarding score) I too know of 6 boys scoring over 345 who will accept places - lets hope its the same boys
