c) Pupils who satisfy both of the following:


(i) They are distinguished from the greater majority of other applicants either on medical grounds which are supported by a medical report, obtained by parents, specifying the medical advantage of the child attending the preferred school compared with the normal catchment area school or by other exceptional circumstances material to the choice of school (i.e. the circumstances of the child, not the economic or social circumstances of the parent); and 


(ii) They would suffer hardship if they were unable to attend the school.


d) Other pupils arranged in priority according to the proximity of their home address to school.
