Slim but existent. PD, Second and Third Round Offers exist. I got PD when all my hopes were lost and I never wanted to wake up and get out of bed again. I was crushed. Now I am on the brim with stress, but it gives me something to work for.

When do you think any of those miracles will occur?

If you havenít gotten a PD by now, well I would have to say I donít think you will be getting one at all. Second Round Offers are next week - the week after that. Third Round Offers are anytime after that till November. Stay hopeful. And then thereís JMSS, EBSS or Year 10/11 Entry for these schools.

how did you get a PD after getting rejected

I got rejected on Wednesday night at about 10pm, not going to lie, I cried for hours. I need(ed) a fresh start, and I thought MGHS could be that for me. The next morning I was at school and received a phone call from my dad (8:30am) he had just gotten an email saying I had been invited to apply for a PD. I was so stoked I burst into tears and my BFF who is going to MHS was slightly crying too. Others from my school got the emails later in the day and also after school, I was the first one in my school to get a PD

Yes! That can certainly happen. If two kids from the same school are both amazing, and stand out from the rest of the candidates, they can both get PDís

Just wanted to chip in my thoughts after reading comments of how people feel after being rejected by a selective school.

Firstly it's totally alright to be rejected. Your only in year 6, you've got 6 years of your schooling left to work hard. Not getting into a selective school is completely fine. I missed out by like 1 mark because I couldn't write an essay properly. There's no need to feel that upset about it =)

At the end of the day it's not the school which defines the student, but rather the student which defines the school. You can do well no matter where you go as long as you work for it.

hm I can tell you're a NSW student, the selective entry schools here in Victoria range from years 9-12. So unfortunately we're not in year 6 :)
