Year 7 reserves

A student's reserve list position for each school is listed on their outcome advice letter. The next student on the list is offered a place when a student with an offer declines that offer.

The reserve list progress for entry in 2019 will be listed here from early August 2018 until the end of the school year. After 19 December 2018, you can email the Unit for updates to the reserve list.

The names of students who accepted an offer to a selective high school as well as having a place on the reserve list/s are removed from the reserve list/s after 3pm on 19 December 2018. From this date, offers will be made only to those applicants who have declined their previous offer or who have not yet received an offer.

If you have accepted an offer, did not decline it, and were also on a reserve list for a higher choice, your child's name has now been removed from the reserve list/s.

Progress of the reserve lists

A student's reserve list number does not change. In some cases, such as a result of a successful appeal, two students can be placed at the same reserve list number. When this happens the student with the highest score will be made the first offer.

After 19 December 2018, the reserve list will not be updated online. To find out if there is further movement of the reserve list, email the Unit on
