Hello, and welcome!
Is it at all possible for him to get ( assuming he gets the desired scores) Dr Chall ?? On their website it says distance of 11.8 miles.
That was a most unusual year, and the distance was far wider than usual simply because they introduced new rules on residence requirements at quite short notice. In every other year you would need to live within around 6 miles from the school for your son to gain a place.
I also realised that I was to have applied before 4 pm of 7th Sep . I applied 12.30 am 8/09/2012. Hoping that he will still get the chance to sit for the exam.
The address evidence rules for Dr Challoners ruled your son out long before that, I am afraid. You needed to be living here on 1st April 2012 in order to apply for a place at the school for September 2013. It is the only Bucks GS with such tight evidence requirements - all the rest have an address evidence deadline of mid-November 2012 this year.
If you still want your son to take the Bucks test despite your late application you will need to speak to the Bucks Admissions team about it, mentioning your recent return to this country.
One more clarification please. What happens in case of the following scenario:
We give QE as first and Watford as second preference. We dont get the desired score at QE but Watford.
Do we get Watford grammer or are we refused admission as they were not our first preference.
Schools do not
know the order of preference that you have placed them in. The allocation is made by the LA (Herts) and is done solely on the basis of the admissions criteria. Your order of preference is not considered. Please see here http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/school ... nce-system
