Hi all,

What are the chances a ranking of 105 in the DAO exams will receive a place on offer day in March 2020.

Thank you

DG has all the statistics at her fingertips but I'm pretty sure that ranking has always got a place in allocations day. (At least since I've been looking at the school so for at least 9 years).

Based on previous years you have a very good chance.

Last rank to get a place on allocation day was 110 in both 2018 and 2019.

Then final ranks to get in for the past five years are as follows:

2015 120
2016 143
2017 158
2018 121
2019 123

However previously the DAO exam being so early has meant that it has always been used as a mock so a number of the high ranks have dropped out each year freeing up places for lower ranked applicants.

But this year the second round of DAO English and Maths was not until 28th Sept so too late to be a mock for other state grammars. Plus only 325 of the applicants actually sat the English and Maths as the rest were knocked out in the first round.

Will this mean that not so many high ranks will drop out this year as they will not be there in the first place?

I really hope this will not be the case but we will not know for another couple of weeks.

DG

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. I’m thinking they still would have sat the exam even if not using as a mock as they wouldn’t have known results for the grammar schools they sat for. So hoping plenty do drop out. Fingers crossed .

74% of applicants will not have been able to sit the English and Maths papers as they were not in the 26% of applicants who passed the first round.

Applicants will not prepare for mocks in the same way as they will prepare for the exams of schools they actually want to go to.

This means they are a lot less likely to secure the score required to sit the second round papers. DG

Hi DG,

What do you predict the rank will go to his year then?

Thanks

I don’t want to speculate but I know 6 kids which has secured a place and only 2 are definitely going. The rest has chosen different schools. It will be a movement. I hope this feels optimistic.Good luck every one

No-one has secured a place yet. Allocation day is 2bd March.

Students who are Ranked 1 to 65 have secured a place if they put it first on their CAF form as there are 65 academic places.

Students ranked 66 to 100 based on previous years are likely to have secured a place if they put it first on their CAF form as it has always gone beyond 100 on allocation day. Last year and the year before it reached 110.

I think it could be slightly less this year, perhaps 103 and then hopefully reaching into the 120s and perhaps early 130s by September as all those parents are lured away by the wonderful North London private schools and all their indefinable magic and superiority. DG
