my daughter scored 219 at stroud which leaves her 173rd on list. can anyone advise as to how many girls usually dont take up a place at stroud. are there a lot of pates/ribston/denmark students that asked to be considered for stroud but wont take up the place. is there any chance of making the step up from 173 to hit the top 120.
I would imagine that there are quite a few who have put down multiple schools. Problem is that this year the system is 'new' so unless you have an inside line to the admissions desk, there's no way of knowing how it's going to shake out. Sadly I'm not on the SHS appeals panel, and even if I were, I wouldn't be told this information! And as for next year, I won't be on any appeals panel, as I could be prejudice (although that's not in my nature, but better safe than sorry).
You're probably in with a reasonable chance, but not guaranteed. My SO overheard several conversations at Minchinhampton Christmas Late Night Shopping on Friday to the same effect (X is at place 135, Y is at 200).
