Seats vs Places

Post by PetriTolki » Sat Apr 27, 2019 3:02 am

She applied for that high school but the competition was intense. There are not many "seats" or "places" left for out of zone students now.

Are they both correct? If so, which is better in this situation? Thank you

The term "seats" is possible in this context but rather formal. In this particular case "places" is probably appropriate.
