I'm so sorry to hear your news, I know we got the news we wanted but I do feel its bitter sweet.
Ours could so easily have gone the other way and I can find no reason to justify one from another, only that I feel eternally grateful to be given this opportunity.
but she can't understand why she didn't get a place as she is in higher groups
I understand were your daughter is coming from. If we as adults don't understand it how can we expect them to.
I wouldn't try to even justify it to her, just console her and let her know that her thoughts echo your own.
Just tell her you believed in her that's why you appealed and she will do well no matter where she goes, because that's what makes her special.
I really do feel for you. Do you have a good alternative?
Sending you huge hugs for both you and your daughter..
