Surely it's the school's fault for allowing 'out of catchment' candidates to take the exams in the first instance and as I suggested in my earlier post, wouldn't the more pragmatic approach be to 'qualify' more candidates than the PAN, subject to the caveat that a qualifying score doesn't guarantee a place, and then allocating the places on score/distance. Redbridge is an example of this.

It would be illegal to disallow OOC applicants. because among them are people genuinely moving into the area. As to your pragmatic suggestion, that is exactly the approach some of us have been advocating for some time, but the schools don't seem to be interested in implementing it.

Has anyone started a petition on gov.uk to see if they will debate this?

I keep meaning to post on this thread.

Mocks taken: 1 (Sutton)
Exams taken: 1 (DAO)
Music exams: 2 (DAO, Ashmole)
Selective places: 0
Other: ranked for music place at Ashmole but outside top 20
Method: DIY tutoring. 1 hour per week since beginning of year 5

I would suggest that 1 hour is not enough for the exams in this area however my DH and I decided that we didn't want to do any more and put DD under too much pressure. What will be, will be. DD didn't give up any extra curricular activities but once again we didn't want the DAO exam to feel a big deal.
