Hi Bloomers, I think you have a really good chance with that ranking - maybe not on offers day next week, but certainly a good chance off the waiting list. You are wise not to build up hopes though just in case, so many variables.
I have responded to the email from WCC and asked if its possible to get the rankings that correlate to the last person offered off the waiting list - they supplied this for AGS, so in theory they should have this information for KES too. It took them over a month to reply to the last email though and I've no doubt they are rather busy at the moment with offers day looming.
Still, if we could get that info it might provide a better picture for all those next week that don't get an offer for their 1st choice next week but are told that they are on the waiting list. As soon as I hear back I'll keep you posted!
My DS scored 224, ranking 168 (with 10 others)for boys in southern priority, so although we did put KES as first option we realise it is highly unlikely and are keeping everything crossed for AGS.
Anyway best of luck for next week, I have a feeling the next 6 days are going to really drag
Thanks Pegtastic, you're a star. I've been a bit wobbly about it today as it's starting to hit home that it's so near. You've been very reassuring and the info you have found out will help to keep me, and those in that borderline/waiting list position, going after March 1st.
I'm sorry if I came over a unappreciative about AGS but DS1 is at KES and the logistics of Warwick to Alcester for DS2 are a bit of a nightmare and nearly put us off applying. It's a really great school so we decided to put it at No.2 and worry about it later. Now we're nearly 'later'
Best of luck to you and your DS, looks like you should be ok for AGS but we'll keep everything crossed for you next week. Hope everyone gets the outcome they wish for.
