    Is a school with an average of a B good or bad at gcse?
    That's a fairly vague metric :P. Do you know the percentage 5 A*-C? The national average is 64% iirc.

    You have to remember, back then there were only 30 places, now there's like 80 and I don't think the number of applicants will have increased much. And yes I am going for maths :-)

    Decided to go on Acorn and check what type my postcode was in and its type 56 xD
    Hopefully that will increase my chances.
    It's weird that I would have never considered where I live to be deprived until I looked at that

    Acorn Category 3 and type 22, although not sure how significant this is.

    I think there may be a positive correlation between Acorn type and likelihood of getting in, given that the website says it seeks to give places to those from the most deprived areas(provided they have the grades of course).Ah well, we'll find out tomorrow (':

    Acorn category 5, type 54.

    can anyone give me the link to look up my postcode data? I have tried the link on the UNIQ website but it just takes me to the Acorn website and I'm not sure how to navigate it!

    Wow! I can't believe we'll be finding out tomorrow! Good luck everyone, hopefully I'll see some of you guys there this summer.

    I go to a grammar school but I'm type 57, so I'm really unsure about what they'll think of me. At least I don't have to wait long to find out...
