Year 7 reserves
A student's reserve list position for each school is listed on his or her outcome advice letter. The next student on the list is offered a place when a student with an offer declines that offer.
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 higher score will be made the first offer.
If your child's place on a reserve list is reached, the Team will contact you.
Closure of the reserve lists for entry in 2021
The reserve list is not updated online after the end of the school year prior to entry.
Most selective high schools do not make further offers after the start of Term 2 in Year 7. Any vacancies that occur after that time are allocated to the Year 8 placement process.
