Phew, thanks. What happened two years ago??
Sorry, missed your post. It was the first year that the results were sent out before the CAF deadline; the CSSE helpfully sent out a guidance sheet with the results email, showing what scores had previously gained places at the various schools. However, they sent it as an attachment, which caused most of the emails to be held up in cyberspace for many hours... The results went through to the primary schools okay, so people who had allowed their primary school to be told were at least able to find out their child's score that way. We didn't have a child sitting that year, fortunately, and for last year they had worked out a better system so the emails generally came through quite quickly.
