You usually have to give a full term's notice of not taking up a private place (or pay a term's fees in lieu) so I'd expect most movement from that to be very soon.

Shichi, I'd suggest you start a new thread (click on start above) using a more specific title or on the relevant *Local Talk* page to get better response

I know some one who accepted an independent place, but then was too lazy forgot to decline the state place until the end of August. I also know someone who was desperate for a place at that state village school. I almost knew what the out come would be....but could only sit back and watch....

Generally London independent school results are out by Feb/March so that's when people should turn down state the ideal world!

Some people hold onto their state places until August, yes. In some cases it's just complete disregard for others who may need the state place they are releasing but in other cases, people are terrified of the school fees and hold onto the state place in case of a job loss before August etc.
