  1. My DS is year 7 and we got an email last year. It was a very quick turnaround too.
  2. I have pm’d you. Apologies if I have misled anyone else but I am only talking from our experience this year.
  3. Congratulations @Farawaydancer!!! X
  4. That makes sense. So upsetting to know things would be so different for us on a different year. But whatever will be will be
  5. From our experience this year bursaries offered are means tested so it would be unlikely that it would work out a better option then the MDS x
  6. Thank you so much @Pinksocks and @PenguinBoysMum. I really appreciate it.
  7. I honestly thought it was just us on the reserve list that felt like they’re in limbo but it seems this is the case even if you have an MDS. I do wish there was much more transparency in this system. I hope you get some answers soon @Pinksocks.
  8. Congratulations to @Pinksocks and @Kitty rose and you DDs! Did you get the MDS straight away or off the reserve list? I understand what you are saying with regards to not knowing the contributions and there still being a chance of MDS being returned. Depending how many MDS we’re given I think my son is pretty near the top of the reserve list so we still have a little hope....
  9. It’s such a rollercoaster isn’t it?? I hadn’t mentioned to my DS that he was on the reserve list as I was waiting to know if there were any bursaries available. I’ve told him tonight and he’s taken it remarkably well. I do wonder how many MDS have been offered. My guesstimate is about 5 which isn’t a lot at all! Many Congratulations to those who have got MDS and a genuine thank you to the likes of @Ms Sunshine who have given theirs back quickly to allow someone else’s DC to fulfill their dream. Thinking of everyone in the same position as us x
  10. Many Congratulations for you and your DD xxx
  11. We are also on the reserve list and have been offered a bursary today but unfortunately it wasn’t enough for us to consider it. Devastated as we know my DS is pretty near the top of the MDS list.
  12. I hope your DS has had a lovely day at his new school x
  13. Hi, we received an email last Friday. Do they usually contact you via email?
  14. My son is too @ponklemum. I rang the Hammond to seek advice re any other financial assistance and they said they won’t know anything with regards to bursaries until the end of next week. Without funding he won’t be able to attend. I am heartbroken for him but decided not to say anything to him until the bursary conversation next week.
