Primary appeal help - oversubscription criteria unclear

Has anyone had experience of primary appeals on the grounds that the admissions arrangements don't make it clear what constitute social and medical needs, or what evidence will be considered? It says in the admissions code that they must be clear, but we have had no end of trouble and inconsistent advice, and in the end didn't manage to submit any because we couldn't get clarity. so we might've missed out on a place because it went to the distance tie breaker in the oversubscription criteria.

I have lots of experience sitting on appeal panels. The social and medicals needs criteria can cause all sorts of problems and you do have to realise that a very high threshold is set in whether you meet the criteria or not.
More than happy for you to PM me with which school and LA and what your problem has been and I will look up what is said about this criteria in your LA.
