    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

    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!!
