For KEGS, is my understanding correct in that places 121-150 (out of the PAN of 150) are not exclusive to only o/c, but are based purely on rank, including both i/c AND o/c, once the first 120 have been allocated to only i/c students? So theoretically, all 150 places could go to i/c with zero allocation to o/c?

Extract from the 2019 admissions policy:

4. Over-subscription for entry in Year 7
a) Where applications for admission exceed the number of places available in Year 7 places will be
awarded in rank order from the tests as follows:
i) Firstly, to the top 120 boys in the selection test who made this school one of their
preferences and who live within the priority area i.e. within a distance of 12.5 miles from the
school (see section 5 below) on 1st September at the start of Year 6, unless they have been
offered a place at a school for which they expressed a higher preference.
ii) Secondly, to the top 30 boys in the selection test out of the remaining candidates who made
this school one of their preferences, regardless of where they live.

Yes, that's the policy and yes, there is a theoretical possibility that all 150 places will go to applicants living in the priority admissions area. But it isn't very likely to happen. The 2018/19 ECC booklet doesn't have details of '2017: last child admitted under criterion x' As it does for the comprehensive schools (possibly because the residence bit isn't an actual separate criterion), but if you contact the school, they may be able / willing to give you some idea of the split?

And it was the policy at the time that registration to sit the exam had to be made (and for several years previously); it's not something that the school suddenly put into its admissions policy since the results came out.

Thank you for responding and I wasn't implying otherwise. Just wanted to clarify as this differs from e.g. WHSB, where again if I'm not mistaken, of the PAN of 185, 139 places are initially for i/c (if not fully allocated to i/c, then also made open to o/c), with the remaining 46 specifically for o/c candidates.

Apologies.

So if you are OOC for both schools, Westcliff is a better bet, although ease of journey may be a consideration when comparing the two, given their relative locations with regard to nearest railway station.

You are also correct on both counts with regard to WHSB :) .
