It depends on the school but It is certainly possible.

Yes it is certainly possible especially if: it is a large school with 210 - 300 pupils per year group, an area where lots of people will go private even if they haven't yet rejected their state school offer, an area where people move frequently eg for work, an area with lots of other good schools (so people above you on the list may accept one of those from waiting lists and come off the list you're on).

Yes we got offered a place from 35th on the wait list at a very sought after state school.
