    Not sure what I should have done as a title.

    Okay, so my sister got back what secondary school shes going to and she didn't get into her first choice which was the one I went to and our brothers. Just to let you know this school isn't a good one, just a normal secondary school.
    Both schools are kinda like "Partner Academy's" but the one she got into is an absolute shithole and I don't want her to go there. If im being honest I was kinda glad when she didn't get in to her first choice because I went there and I know people who still go there who I don't really want her to speak to.

    But I definitely do not want her to go to the one she got into. At the moment she is on the waiting list the person said shes towards the top. But what are the chances of her actually getting in? I was quite shocked she didn't get into it anyway, as all of her siblings went there (We don't go there anymore) and the location is fine.

    Also is it too late for her to apply to other schools? (My mum thought she would definitely get in, but she was wrong.)

    She should still be able to apply for other schools. We usually have students at my school turning up and applying any time of the year.

    Schools have a limit on how many students they can take. The only way she will get a place is if any students that got in there now drop out. It's possible but there are usually only a few that drop out. You'll just have to wait and see. Unfortunately over 100,000 pupils didn't get their first option this year.
