Firstly, i'm not an expert but from advice on here and my research.......
Hi, I am in a very similar position to Eddas. Firstly I wish I'd read this forum more carefully before submitting my school preferences. Will I be penalised at appeal panels for placing the Grammar schools 3rd and 4th place?
As far as I know the panel won't know which order you put the schools in
Additionally my appeals are for non qualification, however I am aware that there are only a limited number of places and the number of appeals far greater. Does anyone know if the apppeals panel only selects enough deemed suitable for Grammar as there are places or if there are more deemed suitable for Grammar then places do they then follow their admissions policy ie local authority care, sibling, distance from school?
Appeals for non-qualification can be successful, so I guess it depends how many appellants have a Kent Test pass, for one of the schools I am appealing for i'm guessing there will be none or few that have passed the Kent Test at the appeals as they are undersubscribed. But I am happy to be told i'm wrong by those more qualified, this is just my opinion!
Finally, if someone appeals two school and gets offered a place in both what happens to the place they then turn down?
My understanding is that appeals places are outside of the offers from waiting lists etc so those places are not offered on if they are turned down.
Good luck Alibun, there's lots of help on here and on my thread if you have a read through, I've asked a lot of questions
