Thatís a f in the chat Iíd be terrified if a teacher told me that
 I think second round offers are just offers you get if thereís an open spot because a student rejected it or didnít respond in time and principals discretion is a whole another thing but donít quote me on that
yeah ok so basically first round is just smartest people
Second round is if they rejected it or they didnt accept in time, also I heard if you dont go to the open day thing they have then your position gets like taken away so ppl can have their offer dropped if they dont show up and that also opens up spots
Third round is basically more offers plus principles discretion where you need to write a letter and then you are a potential candidate for an interview with the principal

I was freaking out yesterday! Verbal was the first paper and it shook me for the rest of the day. Iím petrified that somethingís going to happen because of it. Does any one else know if they actually do something about it? Or should I should I email the Education department people? Ik it sounds way too much but at this stage I really need an answer.

tbh, idk what the education department people will say. in a way, if you email them and it turns out that the supervisors never "noted" it in the first place and it actually has a concequence then youre stuck. but, i mean, i don't think shading bubbles over time is gonna result in your exams not being marked or getting marks deducted.

hereís my situation now
i honestly feel like i flunked the test especially math, i just looked at the answers and randomly guessed. I did the first half for numerical and verbal but guessed the rest completely. For writing i did decent but didnít really have a problem ( but if 3 quick lines of realising he trespassed is a problem then ok)
i did pretty good for reading. I honestly am so crushed seeing as though all my friends did pretty well. :í(

ohmygof are we the same person??? like i know i completely flunked verbal, numerical and maths. reading comp is the only one i am happy about, writing was decent. i was pretty disappointed too when everybody seems to have done well and iíve done so shit. i wanna go suzanne too but that thing about everybody putting suzanne cory as their first pref is so truee  :'( my chances of getting accepted are soooo slim rn itís not even funny oof

Hey ppl,

I went like 3 seconds over time(my bad) on Verbal and this teacher came up to me and was very cross. She said I ďwill be noted.Ē Anyone have any idea if that actually means something?

Also does someone know how the second round offers work? Is the second round basically the Principalís Discretion)?

wow. i saw so many people going like 5 seconds over time finalising their answer sheets or something, you got rlly unlucky   :(

Wow, youíre really lucky. I hope the teacher didnít see you, but I think the reason I was caught was because I was at the very end of the rows. Like right where the teachers stand.

I hope youíre right. In fact, Iím literally betting my stakes of getting into a selective school that youíre right. You also have a point about me actually telling them about the incident and them not having done anything about it. I donít want to be stuck in that dilemma so I might just wait for now(agonisingly).

Iím assuming someone mightíve also been told that but Iím not aware of it. All I know was that I was told that.
