How can the possibly guatprantee a place to every child who passes? Unless they design the entrance exam so very few children do pass

As a matter of interest, why have you only applied to 2 schools, and not put down a banker catchment comp as well?

Why have you listed your first choice school as school 2?

What are the relevant social/medical/economic conditions?
I get the impression those matter a lot more on appeal.

As long as you are totally certain that you will Home Ed in the event of not getting either of the schools you listed, then there's not too much to be nervous about as you will get an option you like either way.

I was a bit worried as your post is perhaps worded oddly or you didn't list the school you want most as your 1st choice on the form? You only get one offer so if DS was successful in both tests and meets any other criteria, he would get offered whichever school you listed first. If you put your first choice second, they'd have no way of knowing that and wouldn't offer it if the one you listed first had a place for him.

I can see why you are nervous, OP: Good luck!
