Parents in Herefordshire join those across England today (Tuesday 1 March 2016), with finding out which secondary school their child will be attending in September 2016.

 

Herefordshire Council has made 1,790 offers of places for secondary schools across the county, with the following parental preference success rates:

 

First preference: 1,622 offers, which is 90.6% of the total offers

 

In comparison to last year, there were 1,682 secondary school place offers made, of which 96.5% were first preferences.

Massive drop in parents' getting their first choice of schools compared to last year ..... A reflection of a National trend ...

It's all about scale Dippy.

If 1 is the answer, but that 1 is 10%, then 10% is a much grander, more noticeable figure.

If the answer is 1,000,000.  But that only equates to 0.1%...  Then the figure to quote is 1 million!  1 Million is way scarier than 0.1%.

How would the statisticians and spin doctors keep in employment if they didn't scare the bejesus out of the general public on a regular basis?
