We have our appeal on Friday and would appreciate some advice on whether we should mention the following in our appeal ...
DD has high qualifying score, on 1 March were advised we were unsuccessful in gaining a place, due to over-subscription, but were 2nd on waiting list. On 1 April, were advised 1 place had become available after re-allocation so now 1st on waiting list. No movement for next 6 weeks or so, then recently 2 students have come along from other counties will higher qualifying scores so have gone ahead of us on waiting list. Have been infomed today that 2 places became available (one yesterday, one the week before), so both students that joined the list ahead of us have been given a place. We are now yet again first on waiting list, but with appeals starting in Friday VERY unlikely to gain a place now, and obviously once appeals start waiting list becomes irrelevant.
Should I bring these facts up in appeal? It feels like the past few months have been a completely torturous rollercoaster ride. Had DD have failed test, or not got such a high qualifying score the situation wouldn't be so awful, but as it is, it's feel hard to move on from.
Any advice would be appreciated. I really am struggling with the whole thing now.
