I can't believe how long we have had to wait - in fact - I am disgusted about it. I put in my LEA form towards the end of September last year. I KNOW that the grammar school has known if my daughter got in after her test in November, since about December last year.
Independents can get their results out within 2 weeks, what the $*&*! is wrong with the councils. Why can't they get their act together and put us all out of our misery. In a world where we communicate in seconds does it really take 5 months to allocate a child his/her school place? It has just got longer and longer. I thought it was bad waiting for my first child's school place - I think I waited 3.5 to 4 months. The wait this time really takes the biscuit though.

I agree wholeheartedly with you. I thought when they moved the taking of the test to November, they would then bring the results forward to January - instead the children are sitting it very early (only just into Year 6) and we still have to wait 14 weeks. Makes no sense to me at all but I suppose with the LEA involved as well as CSSE it has just made the whole process slower.
