I don't think that is correct, as above, from the school, the last rank is 98.

98 is the last rank on the 1st March. A few places will be available later as some people will change their minds ( E.g. go private etc). Apparently the last rank to get a place by Sept can be between 115 and 125 so 122 is borderline. You may have to wait a good while before being offered a place. Good luck !

Suspect they will offer further places when they hear that people who have been offered places do not want them - so no definite time scale

Do you know when this will be reflected on the website? (Last year they gave almost monthly updates on their website with lowest ranked position offered and furthest distance)

There are only 65 academic places and 10 music places available at DAO so it is possible that as yet no places have been handed back. Compare this to 192 places at QE and 104 at HBS and 192 at Latymer. There is no penalty for holding a state school place and a private school place and no way for the school or the council to know this. Today on the website the last academic place offered remains at 98 and the last music place offered remains at 12 and the distance place remains unchanged. I do know of just one family who put DAO 2nd and HBS 1st so are waiting for a HBS place. So it is possible that the academic waiting list is about to move one place.

Music has not changed, it was already on !2 but a nine rank leap to 107 in the academic ranks is quite something. That is almost 14% of the places. The student I know has been offered HBS so their place is one of these 9.


I wonder if there was anyone who turned an offer down and decided to stay with the lower choice they were offered on March 1st.
