I have all the information on hand as you have mentioned but wanted to know what was the lowest score that was given a confirmed seat in category A. Last year the category score was between 281-223 but not sure for eg. if someone with a 228 got in or all 39 seats got filled by the time score got to 230. I hope my understanding is correct?? Thanks.
Looking at the admission rules, the actual score is disregarded once it has been used for allocation to a band. If there are only as many applicants in that band as there are places, then all would get in, but if a band is oversubscribed (as I assume they always are?), then the oversubscription criteria come into play, starting with Looked-after children, etc.
Forgive me if I have misunderstood this, but it is how it appears to me, looking at the school's website.
