For the maths, I say I could confidently get marks for about 75- 80percent of the paper. About 5 percent I'm sure I got core to but not too confident, and about 15 percent of the examination were question I'd never seen.

Anyway, I think there were about 200-300 people there, and they probably take 1/4 to a 1/2 for interviews

About 5 places for boys, and 40 places for girls- competition is extremely tough for boys. Anyway the essay section was quite good in my opinion. What other schools have you guys applied to

Yep, for Sevenoaks. Don't know whether to try for anywhere else- anyway I think they take about 1/4 to a 1/2 for interviews

No chance for me either. I feel like I did okay in the exams but it wouldn't be enough to get me an interview let alone a place in the school...

I feel like that as well. There must have been so many people who must of performed better than me. Maybe if we had a really good reference, we have a chance. Just counting the days till Thursday

But maybe they are not looking for perfection. They want potential they can develop and teach . Let's keep hope!!
