I am applying to a Kent GS on over-subscription. I have spoken to KCC and the School and they have 107 appeals to be heard - and historically only give 5-9 places a year through appeal.
I know I have a good case and I have a lot of evidence to back up every point I make. Even with this the nerves are just really starting to get to me - I am having to go to the appeal alone due to work commitments.
How is everyone else feeling? Any tips on being calm and collected on the day - I am concerned I will be flapping all over the place rather presenting my case clear and concise. Normally I am very optimistic however the stats aren't great for appeal success, and I have given it so much time and effort and research as I'm sure we all have.
It won't be too many weeks until we all have our answers and can move forward - good luck to all
We are at our appeal hearing tomorrow
I am also very nervous! I have typed my 'speech' and summary statement out and have been practicing reading it out. My daughters teacher is attending the appeal with me to answer any academic evidence, is that a possibility for you? Our GS have 21 appeals and five available spaces which I have been completely stressing about! Wishing you all the best and lots of luck
