Deciding on your preferences

It is very important that you look at each school’s admissions arrangements in relation to your circumstances so that you are aware of the order in which places are allocated at oversubscribed schools. You should look at how places were allocated last year to see if you have a realistic chance of being offered a place in your preference school(s). We strongly advise that you name your priority area school as one of your preferences.
