Only two more days till results come out ... I'm so impatient

The waiting for the SW London boys' schools is driving me nuts. All the girls at DS's primary know where they're going already. Anyone else sharing my pain ...

I completely feel your pain. I have a DD so am lucky as we have had some results but the days leading up to envelopes arriving were torturous. Plus our post comes very late, after midday, so that seemed to extend the hell. I am now waiting for post this Friday from KGS but we have some offers in the bag so i feel a lot less stressed. But yes, I share and empathise - nothing nice about the whole process. However i am starting to realise that probably it DOES indeed all work out in the end, and there will be masses of movement next week as people start making decisions, releasing places, waiting lists get called upon etc. Good luck!

Squeaky bum time in our house too 😳! You are not alone. We are in SE London and all results out Fri.

Me too! And this week is possibly the slowest week ever...

Thanks. Then possibly our favourite one isn't out until 17 Feb!
How many places do the boys' schools and KGS over-offer, would you say?

It's a tortuous process but we are nearly there!

roll on friday.

at least we have a definite date for KGS. With the girls' schools i could barely function waiting for the post, thinking it "might" come / was due.

17 Feb !!

Is KGS being posted tomorrow, to arrive Friday yes? I estimated they interviewed around 300; probably offer to over half...?

yes, KGS posted tomorrow.

i think your numbers are about right keepcalmandcarryon
hopefully see you here next week for "which school?" dilemmas smile

Good luck to all of your DSs and DDs. Hoping KGS letters don't get lost like their interview emails did (and my friends' PHS offer letters!!)

Aaaarrrggghhh. This way madness lies.

I'm awaiting Kings Wimbledon (pretest) mailing today but Westminster isn't until March, and Winchester May. Have really rather had enough of the whole topic now.

Thankfully DS, now that the exams and interviews are over, appears to have lost all interest !

DS got Kingston and Whitgift - PHEW! Thank you for sharing the journey.

Hope everyone else got what they wanted. xxx
