Hello all,

Just wondering:

*If you want to be considered in the second round of Continuing Interest for schools you had initially not put down, should you put them down in order of preference or in order of highest likely (by distance or academic results)? Does one way disadvantage the other, or they will be considered equally?

*If a place does come up and you get contacted, do you get a two week period or so like with the first allocations to accept or reject? Which leads to my next question. . .

*The moment you get an offer from the CI list, do you automatically and instantly lose the place you initially had to accept after offer day?

Thanks.

My understanding is that in Herts you can only include schools that were in your original 4 preferences in the 1st and 2nd rounds of CI - there are a small number of schools that do allow you to add them at these stages - the Herts website gives a list. Places are allocated automatically and on an equal preference basis so you'd immediately forfeit any place you were holding without consultation.

After the 2nd run of CI - end of April - places are allocated as they become free and you are given a grace period to make your decision - unsure how long this might be.

Thank you. From my understanding, in the second round that starts tomorrow, one can add schools that were originally not among the first four.

Glad to hear there is a grace period later.

Yes you are absolutely right, the 2nd run is different in that you can add all schools to your application. Good luck!

No idea about Herts, I'm afraid (presumably nothing on their website?), but 'rounds' are definitely not national, as some areas just re-offer places as they become available.
