Exactly our situation, my DD sat for TGS and NonSuch OOC, TGS was our first priority due to proximity, but my DD got Nonsuch OOC (second pref ) and we are now waiting if DD appears on the TGS wait list.

Only 29% of the top 85 places at Nonsuch went to OOC girls last year, so I would say it’s harder to get one of those places, if you live within the designated area for Tiffins but OOC for Nonsuch.

Is it possible that this is the case because the DDs from OOC put another school higher than NonSuch and got a place there. Without actually knowing these numbers it would be impossible to say which school is harder to get into. And even with those numbers unless there is a clear difference that is trend over several years, it could be down to how some of the DDs felt on the day of their entrance tests.

The one thing that does differentiate the 2 schools entrance is that TGS does not carry forward the Stage 1 scores, so all girls sitting Stage 2 have an equal chance whereas NonSuch gives weightage to the Stage 1 scores (how much I am not sure) but if you have scored highly in the Stage 1 multipe choice questions you are at an advantage, albeit a very very small one.
