    Yeah So we might have walked past each other if you had come to the boys school during the general studies periods

    You thinking about going?
    I'm not too sure.. I have heard the teachers there don't try as hard because the students are already quite gifted, I've got offers from Langley and Herschel Grammar also, but now doing my GCSE's I don't think I have done as well :'( I don't know if every student feels like that, but that's how I'm feeling at the moment.

    Lol nah the female gender sign is wrong, only kidding


    Cool is it fun, what do you do? I wanted to do that
    Yeah it's alright, quite a jump though, UCL leave you to your own devices from the start - at least on my course anyway! So was a bit of a struggle but it's alright now... because it's the summer

    In general it's pretty good. Initially you may feel like you're not getting much support but that's mostly down to the rest of students being very bright so the teachers don't always go at a slow pace. However if you actually try and ask a teacher to go over certain topics they would be more than happy to.

    Hey there, I'm currently commuting 3 hours a day to get to my sixth form, it's not that bad, but when your alarm goes off at 6.20 it does make you want to cry!

    No I left Tiffin last year. I'm on a gap year right now, hoping to start university next year
    No worries man, it's always good to talk to someone who's been through it before you decide plus I got all excited when I saw Herschel Grammar in your post, brings back memories

    Not a problem

    A level I achieved AAB (AAA as of January)
    Yeah I'll admit, as a building it is far newer than tiffin's who interviewed you in Herschel?
