My DD has Waiting list as well.  We have never applied for the intensives before but thought we would give it a go as pictures are the same for Mids & WL audition.  My DD has had two nos for year 4 and 5and SWL for year 6 JAs.  I am so surprised she is on the waiting list we thought it would be a straight no!  I am so proud of her perseverance she’s so determined to achieve her dreams.

Congratulations to all the swl and yeses. DD looks to be the only no on here just now 😢

Aw I think the data here is probably skewed and a lot of nos perhaps not saying on here....Looking at past years most people got a no xxx

As Raquelle said - lots of people with no’s don’t share the news (which is up to them of course). My DD has just had probably her 5th no for an RBS intensive! She’s in year 9 at vocational school and has never had any success with RBS - but plenty at other places. It must be lovely to be chosen but it’s not the only way xx

Another one for the waiting list here! Congratulations to those who got a yes, especially those who were disappointed last year. I wonder if there might have been more pressure on places this year for that reason, which might explain the looooong waiting list this year!

They mentioned they are only giving residential offers so this might limit the numbers of places available as many Londoners would have commuted perhaps.

My dd also on the waiting list. She’s a year 6 JA, and was supposed to attend the summer intensive this year. I did warn her that there are fewer places available for the Easter. Can I ask those talking about ‘short waiting list’, did it say that in your email? Ours just said Waiting List.

We got a no, just wonder now where this leaves our MA/WL application?DD is Yr6 JA.

Don't over think it and carry on with your applications.  They didn't see your DC dance - it is all photos and they probably closed their eyes and pointed!  My DC got a place and has been lucky enough to go to a few over the years  but it has absolutely no baring whatsoever on whether they will get a WL or MA place.  The year my DC was applying for the school there were a few who didn't get spring or summer but went on to get a place at WL.  Honestly year 6 is the most stressful year for both parents and children - it should have a health warning!

Thankyou for your kind words. I dont think DD looks great in photos and certainly doesn't catch her artistry,we are trying to be really grounded about the Yr7 applications, they have nearly all gone digital, so I'm a bit concerned her photos will be a problem this year as more is put on them... We are doing the MA/WL video audition at home, so its not going to be Oscar winning! We were just hoping for a wait List for Spring Intensive this time around but sadly no, I think a wait list would help spur us on for the videos and photos! Haha. 

Congratulations to your DC xx
