I got accepted into both of these for sixth form and I'm absolutely torn. I'm quite bright (expecting 9 A*'s and a C or B-- in exam pe obviously), I'm planning to do physics, maths, further maths, and literature or philosophy. St doms offered me those, but habs will wait to see my IGCSE maths results before giving me further maths, because I absolutely botched the maths entrance exam as I had surgery two days prior. So instead, they've given me accelerated maths (9 modules instead of 6) until they make a decision. If i take fm there, they would make me carry my fourth subject into A2.
Anyone have any insight into what school life involves at either of these? I'm very capable, especially in essay based subjects like literature where I got 97% in my mocks and the subject award, however, I don't want to go to a very strict school. I'm independant and responsible, so I'd prefer somewhere where I don't have teachers on my back with useless work 24/7. From what I gather, habs will be more ardous as school finishes later at 4:20 and I will have less frees. What are the people like in habs/ st doms?
I would greatly appreciate any pointers (and sorry for the onslaught of random questions-- that's what happens at 5am when you can't sleep and overthink)
Haberdashers' Aske'd Boys' or St dominics?
