It is 5pm for London and Surrey Highflying so not too long left now.
You may not get your email on the dot of 5 (they are sent out in batches and can take several hours to arrive) but you should be able to log on to the eadmisisons site and view results from 5pm onwards.

I am waiting. My first choice is a school that allocates places based on lottery system! So makes me super anxious as I have no idea if we get in. If it was distance I would have more of a chance because we live near school.

Yes in Surrey and the wait is driving me crazy 😬

Feeling sick! We live in London and aren't close enough to any of the local schools (despite being 320m from our nearest, last year they had a last offered place under 280m and rumours are they have 40 siblings this year) so it really is a lottery for us. Our only hope of a local school is a religious school which we applied for but will be way down on the priority list as we're not religious. So if not there, we'll probably be assigned a school the other side of the borough. Feel sick!

Yes! V impatient waiting here as well. We're also in a bit of an admissions black hole - no idea what we'll be offered. Trying to stay positive!

Mandzi34 Mon 18-Apr-16 14:48:46

Yep waiting here also for London. Hoping to get a place due to sibling policy but I won't feel happy until I see the confirmation. Oldest didn't get his secondary choice so would like some good news!

Same in Cardiff... 4pm on the portal if no email.

Feeling sick to stomach as well - worse than my a level results day.
At work and having to sneakily check ... We moved to be nearer better schools and just know that all the pain of moving could be wasted.

I've just downloaded and logged into the parent comm app anyone used it

snowgirl1 Mon 18-Apr-16 15:09:36

We're in Surrey. I keep logging on in the hope that the info is there.

Highflyingmamma1980 Mon 18-Apr-16 15:14:33

Ive got parentcomms app although i don't know if that will help us get the results earlier!

ShelaghTurner Mon 18-Apr-16 15:26:27

Yes I've got the app too although that's staring at me uselessly 😡

snowgirl1 Mon 18-Apr-16 15:41:31

Yes, I've got the app too - and been checking that too. Every blip or beep my phone makes has me jumping to check it...just in case it's "the" email sent early. I'm not quite sure why I'm so obsessed, as I thought I'd resigned myself to getting our 4th preference - which is our contingency choice.

Highflyingmamma1980 Mon 18-Apr-16 16:07:07

Im not sure if the app will aleet us early. I hope so. Ita 4pm now and still nothing! Come on...

ShelaghTurner Mon 18-Apr-16 16:12:45

I'm climbing the walls. I keep checking the application to make sure I filled it in properly. Like I can do anything about it if I didnt hmm

Highflyingmamma1980 Mon 18-Apr-16 16:17:59

Same here. I keep second guessing myself like you! I just want to know. Come on Surrey/London

BrightandEarly Mon 18-Apr-16 16:23:54

Waiting here too. We should get in (220m from school) but it's a one form entry and 'catchment' has varied wildly depending on the number of siblings.

Andcake Mon 18-Apr-16 16:28:44

Flipping between app and email - just revealed to work colleagues why I'm jumpy
Bet it will arrive whilst I'm on tube and it will be bad news

ShelaghTurner Mon 18-Apr-16 16:30:09

Someone on the other thread says it goes live at 5 with emails sent out from then onwards. Only have to amuse ourselves for another 31 minutes.... I Spy anyone?

PalacePalacePalace Mon 18-Apr-16 16:35:37

Another Londoner joining the thread. I had a job interview today which took my mind off primary admissions - well for a short time! grin

I just checked the website and am surprised by my 5th and 6th preferences! Applying was so long ago I've forgotten what schools we put down!

Highflyingmamma1980 Mon 18-Apr-16 16:35:53

Eye spy! Ha ha. My son is driving me mad. He keeps asking me stuff but I feel too pre-occupied! Ha ha. Hope its not much longer than 5pm!

SomedayMyPrinceWillCome Mon 18-Apr-16 16:35:53

So nervous here.
Is it too early for wine

Highflyingmamma1980 Mon 18-Apr-16 16:40:39

Im getting on the vino soon. Whether its to celebrate or down my sorrows! Im trying to think positive thoughts! X
