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.

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 18 December 2019 (for entry in 2020).

From this date until the end of Term 1 in the year of placement, offers will be made only to those applicants who have declined their previous offer or who have not yet received an offer.

Progress of the reserve lists

The reserve list progress is now active and can be followed until the end of the school year. The list will be updated whenever there is significant movement.

After the end of the school year, the reserve list will not be updated online. To find out if there is further movement of the reserve list after that time, email
