the waiting list is ordered in the same way that places are allocated ie by score first and then within each score point by distance - so all the 236s will be ranked by distance then the WL will move onto 235s

There is a chance but unfortunately a very slim one. Proximity to the school does help with the wait list as positions on the same score are ranked by distance. It all depends on the first wait list movement, how many boys choose private over QE or parents deciding against relocation. The last wait list number usually is around double the first wait list movement, so the first wait list movement will be a good indicator. Good luck

Congrats all who got QE. My son got 233 so pretty far down waitlist and so almost zero chance of getting in. Such a big jump in score threshold from previous years and whilst we are sad for him as it was his first choice we are happy for all those children who worked really hard and did so well. Ultimately all the kids who passed the minimum required standard are bright and motivated children and will likely do well wherever they end up.

Totally agree.. They all did their best and we have to remind them whatever is the end result but they learned a lot in this process, and it will be the great foundation for their future.
All the best to your son.

Each separate score is ranked by proximity.

So all 238's will be allocated from the waiting list in proximity to the school order then when all those are done they
will start on the 237s in proximity to the school order

Hi experienced members,

Need some advice please. Our county council does not have a process to accept or reject offer. They assume it is accepted by default and strongly advise against rejecting any offer without speaking to them.

However, QE has written an email to us to inform them whether we accept or reject the offer by 15th of this month.

After 4 Months of trying to sell the property and not seeing much success, our possibility of relocation looks bleak and we are going to request to be added to the waiting list of our 2nd choice school. Though reasonably certain that it will work, we won't know the result before end of Month and then there is a window of couple of days to accept or reject the waiting list offer.

So, we are going to say to QE that we accept the offer knowing it is quite probable that we will reject it later (unless some unlikely magic happens in this month)

I do not reckon that it would create any issue for us in the admission process but just wanted to know if anyone thinks otherwise?

It is fine to accept QE now and in fact we always advise people to accept the school they are allocated on the day. It will not affect any appeals or being on waiting lists or waiting for reallocation for any other school.
