We are! Think they are posted tomorrow so we should hopefully know on Tuesday.

Fingers crossed!

We are too. Any idea how many places they will offer? Have heard mixed messages. Senior tutor definitely said most boys they interview get places when he showed us round ie approx 25 but at interview the head said 15. Also v interesting how different the kings and colet interviews are, kings no Maths whereas colet 3 quite tough questions.. Ho hum fingers crossed

Glad you said that, as that is my recollection of what the senior tutor said too but once Ds had got an interview we started to doubt ourselves and didn't want to be too complacent! I thought Head said that they have 14/15 places which would mean making about 20/25 offers I think.

Anyway our postman has just been and gone and nothing so am feeling v anxious as had definitely been expecting the letter today. Would they send out no letters at the same time as offers? Really don't understand why they don't do it by email!!!!

Usually they take around 20-24 at 11. They offer up to 10 places at 10+ deferred and then a further 10 to 15 at 11+. In DS1's year they took 6 boys at 10 and 14 at 11 - they interviewed around 30. When DS2 did it at 10+ the head told me that they took a max of 10 at 10+ but usually no more than 6 - I think they interviewed 18 then but don't know how many offers they made. About 23 boys started with him.
Good luck with waiting and hope you get the news you are hoping for.

Fear not - we ended up calling Colet at 3:45 yesterday and they were just getting the letters ready to send out. Knowing our post we are not now expecting until tomorrow... so frustrating. Wonder if they will give results over the phone?

I suppose to secure 15 places they will need to offer a minimum of 20, as not everyone will accept. The head said they interviews 25
