If anyone can please shed some light regarding this new document.
Thanks


School told to clarify re banding.

However, this will not have any effect on admissions.

Essentially, banding based solely on score within the top 300 is now redundant (but equally, they cannot use the oversubscription criteria to rank candidates, as that contravened the Admissions Code). It will be interesting to see how the required amendment is worded, though. Meanwhile, I am thinking that a Freedom of Information request early in March, requesting details of how places were actually allocated, might be a good idea...

What if there are more stage 2 children in 3 miles radius than the available places?

In rank order or distance to school?

From TMs post on another thread?

Candidates who currently live within 3 miles of the school at the point when they submit their application to the Local Authority in October, providing that the candidate is capable of following The Henrietta Barnett School education. In this category, a candidate will be considered to have the necessary capability if they sit the Round Two test. In the unlikely event that there are more candidates in this category than places available, then places will be allocated in rank score order.
And:
Where candidates are equally ranked, geographical proximity to the School as measured by the London Borough of Barnet (as described above) will be used to decide the final placings. Applicants from the same block of flats, or applicants who live the same distance from the school will be selected in random order using Barnet Council’s computerised system and places will be offered accordingly.

Thanks.
Perhaps was concentrating on outcomes para (ii).

Do you know if there is math or calculation in the first exam at HBS? So if you are not very good in Math but excellent in English, VR and NVR, and live in the 3 miles radius, you can be able to enter HBS?

There is not a separate Maths paper but there are some mathematical elements in the VR.

How is she with codes and alphabetical sequencing?

With 90% of applicants not making it through to the second round I don't think that any applicant is able to feel that their chances are very high of being one of the three hundred in the second round rather than in the two thousand seven hundred who do not go forward to the second round.

It is very important to have a sound plan B when applying to HBS.

Being in the catchment area does not help you get through to the second round.
