21 Which preference matters? In 2007/1 for school leavers: – 74% of enrolments came from the 1 st preference; – 15% of enrolments came from 2 nd preference; – 6% of enrolments came from 3 rd preference; and – 2% of enrolments came from 4 th preference. In 2011/1 for school leavers: – 62% of enrolments came from the 1 st preference; – 18% of enrolments came from the 2 nd preference; – 10% of enrolments came from the 3 rd preference; and – 5% of enrolments came from the 4 th preference.

22 Which preference matters? In 2007/1 for non-school leavers: – 85% of enrolments came from the 1 st preference; – 10% of enrolments came from the 2 nd preference; – 3% of enrolments came from the 3 rd preference; and – 1% of enrolments came from the 4 th preference.

23 Observations The growth of applications has been greater than the growth of offers and enrolments; Non-1 st preference enrolments have increased, more so for school leavers; Enrolment rates vary depending on the preference of the offer, and between school leavers and non-school leavers.

24 Conclusions 1.If the growth of applications continues to be greater than the growth of offers, the number of offers to non-1 st preferences will continue to grow; 2.This will lead to more enrolments from non-1 st preferences; 3.Since enrolment rates decrease moving from 1 st preference down to 6 th preference, there will be fewer enrolments; 4.Since enrolment rates for each preference for school leavers have generally increased over the years, there will be more enrolments; and 5.Since enrolment rates for each preference for non-school leavers have largely stayed the same, there will be the same number of enrolments.
