How does a secondary school waiting list work watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have been applying to move school for quite some time now, and today I got a letter back from my chosen school saying that I am number 8 on the waiting list. So I was just wondering what they mean by that. Do I become number 7 when someone drops out? and so on, I have to wait for 8 people to drop out to be able to get into the school?
    Is thee anyway I can make the waiting list go down faster? or is it all out of my hands
