Dear All My daughter is sitting 11+ test at St.Margaret's, Hampstead in Jan'18. Given that there are no sample papers on their website, I am wondering if anyone who has had previous experience with this school could help me. Are their 11+ tests similar to North London consortium tests in terms of level of difficulty?
Good Morning, All. We have a couple of offers but waitlisted at St.Margaret's, Hampstead, which my daughter is very keen on. Does anyone have experience on if they move onto wait list as all since their intake is so small (single digit)?
The vast majority of waiting list movement at independents typically happens in the first few days of March - with response deadlines looming (so most responses are in) and state offers are out (1 March) - so I suggest you wait at least 3 weeks.
And look carefully at the deadline for your favourite offer, and be ready to hand-deliver your form & cheque just as that acceptance deadline expires, after calling StM one more time on your mobile... (You don't want to lose a deposit unnecessarily).
If you have not already done so, call the registrar today and say that that you would accept immediately if offered.
You can also consider mentioning that you have an offer - your second preference - which requires a deposit, and by when. (The StM registrar will worry that you will be less keen on StM after accepting and paying a deposit somewhere else)
