odd, but today i got an email stating the were unable to open the first two documents i had submitted for my daughter's selection review (both were ordinary PDF files, submitted online) - no idea if something is wrong with their system.

they have requested i resend the documents "in a different format"! Surely PDF files are a universally accepted standard?!

That’s really strange
I sent pdfs too. I haven’t got any emails from them yet
It could be something on their side
May be you could try sending it as a jpeg or png?

I have to assume it’s a problem on their side, or perhaps something went wrong during the upload of the files...one of which was the exact same PDF previously sent to me by BCC (a copy of the headteacher’s form).

I’ve resent the same files by email in response to their request, having also checked the files are good on multiple different PCs and iOS devices!

It may have been a problem on the email, when the files are attached.

Just as an idea perhaps copying yourself or another email into the message then you can see what they see and see if the attachments are usable.

OED

Quick update...I’m utterly over the moon to report that with my daughter’s score of 114, we have just received the wonderful news that she has been successful at selection review.

Very best of luck to those still waiting!

Likewise here, on the same score! It's been a stressful few months... Best wishes to you and yours

Thank you so much - and many congratulations to you and your son too! Isn’t it just the biggest relief?!

Anecdotally, I am hearing of an unusually large number of successful selection reviews this year...perhaps related to the mess up with the paper?

Edit: in my excitement, I forgot to say thank you for all the sage advice and information on this site which undoubtedly contributed to the outcome.
