    I wasn't accepts into my own schools sixth form and when I asked why they said it could be because of my attendance but they may end up accepting me but during the holidays they've sent me a letter saying that they can't offer me a place without a specific reason. It's been brought to my attention that the school admissions code says that they mus not take into account previous attendance or behaviour so what should I do. My grades are good and I'm predicted mainly As and Bs.

    what are you going to loose by appealing? also did you apply to anywhere else?

    That's cruel. I think you should have a word with your sixth form officer, that'll help.
    Have you applied to other school sixth forms?

    lol what a *****, if they dont want u den skeet

    Appeal and give evidence that the school admissions code says 'xyz' . If they reject it then they're idiots for going back against their "own" code.

    Apply to other sixth forms (Not sure if it's too late now but try).

    The problem is I'm only realising now that I should have appealed as no one told me and I've just read that they should have given me a reason for the rejection and told me how to appeal and deadline for appealing but the letter only consisted of them telling me I didn't get a place
