If the North Liverpool Academy, Liverpool College and the Belvedere Academy are oversubscribed a banding system is used to decide which children are offered places. The results of the test will place applicants in one of five ability bands.
If these bands are oversubscribed, random allocation is used to allocate places. The aim of using banding is to help the academy to have a spread of children with different abilities and because of this applicants will not be informed about the outcome of the tests for these three schools.
