    I am in Year 11 and I applied to King Edward Camp Hill Boys Sixth Form in mid-Jan after my mock examinations. However I since have not received an interview. I have a friend who sent his application the same day as me and has had an interview already along with lots of my other friends. Here are my mock grades:
    History - A
    Computer science - A
    Chemistry - A
    Physics - A
    Maths - A
    German - B
    Religious education - A
    Art - D
    English language - B
    English literature - B

    What happened at first was that my application was lost in the post and they did not receive it so the head of the sixth form asked me to send him an online application (PDF) through email. I did so and have not received an interview, I even sent an enquiry email asking whether they received it or not. They said I should rest assured that they had received it. Only a week ago they sent me along with my other friends who had already had an interview an email saying we hadn't received an offer, however my friends who had an interview were told they were put on the reserved list but I was just told that I wasn't receiving an offer. Could someone tell me why they think I haven't gotten an interview after applying such a long time ago. Is it because of my D grade in art (although some got slightly less better grades than me and still managed to get an interview) or because my application was sent online rather than being in paper form.
    Thanks for any suggestions.
