Post subject:  Local comp it is then!

Hello everyone

Just thought I'd let everyone know - I've just had an email from SCC - Very sad to say that my son didn't get into Tiffin.

I dont know yet what my son's score was but there is still hope for the waiting list, I guess.

Believe it or not, I've been sat at my computer all day refreshing my inbox and now I feel so deflated. I haven't even told my son yet who is going to be devastated.

Can't help tormenting myself: Should we have started coaching sooner? Should I have employed a tutor? Oh well, large glass of wine for me!

I wish everyone else good luck with their results.

Im so sorry that your son didn't get Tiffin. Hopefully, both our sons will have a chance with the waiting list.

Do you happen to know when Tiffin will post out the exam results? We might have an idea then if its worth hope. Its like the waiting game all over again.

I'm on my second glass of wine and I've just broken the news to my son (I made it sound like it was a good thing). He seemed OK about it - Not sure if he'll feel the same once he gets to school tomorrow and finds out where his friends will be going.

Hallo you two.
I am so sorry to hear your news. We all know what an incredibly hard school it is to get into and over 1100 sat it, didn't they this year?
Your 2 sons worked as hard they could, and I know you are very proud of them both. They will do well in whatever school they go to - they obviously have the brains..........and supportive parents.
Thanks for sharing the news - that must be quite hard.
Good luck for the waiting list though......... you never know?!

Thank you for your support and you are so right, I am incredibly proud of my son, especially as it was purely his decision to go for Tiffin. (Secretly thats what I wanted too).

I am sure my son will do well wherever he goes because he is that kind of child.

I've already taken a couple of phone calls from parents whose children did get into Tiffin. It is so difficult not to be jealous - Thats the wine talking!!!

To answer Guest's question: I did receive the decision via email
However, I spoke to SCC this afternoon (Wow, was I keen) they said that emails would not be sent out 'til tomorrrow.

Just off to pour some more wine.

That'll teach me for been too eager to hear my son's fate. I've been on the phone to scc all day complaining. When I do hear i get given the local sink comp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can't believe how upset I was -crying and all. Ought to be ashamed of myself.
My son stated laughing - nervously. He is gutted. We do have a good private to go to but that costs money.

Anyone out there know what happens with waiting lists? Do we get to know what mark they got?

For those of you waiting good luck.
