    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.

    1. Schools have the right to change their admissions code - are you sure this isn't the case for the Sep 2017 entry/cycle?

    2. Is the admissions code apply to you or outside students?
