    When did you apply? I was a late applicant and I got accepted last week.

    I doubt you have a slimmer chance of getting in; lots of people applied late and got an offer. This school can accommodate for more students if necessary, which they seem to be doing already; just try your best, see what happens.

    Wilson's Sutton Grammar School; but I won't get in, they don't count 3 of my subjects and have only 10 spaces. I prefer Harris Westminster anyway. Is Harris Westminster your first choice?

    Just think, now you are going to meet a lot of other new people who you will build awesome friendships with :-) only one other person from my school also got accepted and she's not that interested lol. I've been accepted to another sixth form nearer my location, it's new but has a good reputation so far and most of my friends also got accepted, oh and they give every student a free iPad and free gym membership and books (which I love). However, HWSF offers so much more and it is a life goal of mine to study at Oxford, so altogether we just have to remember to put our priorities first and remember that we have been given a great opportunity lol :-):-):-)

    Thanks, that makes me slightly more relieved. I'm assuming you scored quite highly to get in?

    It's a toss up between HSWF and LAE (London Academy of Excellence). I've been accepted by both, so just need to choose... So what are your predicted grades?

    Hey, I got accepted to LAE too, it is really good there and closer to where I live although I'm choosing HWSF over LAE. However, what I am unsure about is NCS (Newham Collegiate Sicth Form) I got an acceptance letter on Friday, did you apply there by any chance? I really need advice concerning which i should choose lol! :rolleyes:

    I cant really choose between my first choice and HWSF, both seem to be great. I just put that school as my first choice because its much harder to get into.

    My predicted grades are:

    English Lang: B-A
    English Lit: A
    Mathematics: A*
    Further Maths: A*-A**
    Biology: A-A*
    Chemistry: B-A
    Physics: A*
    Economics: A-A*
    Computing: A*
    History: A-A*
    Art and Design: A-A*

    However my mock exams have proven that i need to do quite a bit of work to get those grades.

    I think that HWSF will help me get to Oxford or Cambridge (also my life time ambition) as 50% from Westminster independent school get accepted there and HWSF have access to their teaching facilities. Overall what your saying is 100% true, friends come and go but my A levels are staying with me for life, also I'm bound to get along with many of you in this discussion!

    So I'm thinking about maybe swapping English Lit for History or Classics but I'm not sure since all 3 seem interesting
    Any advice? Is it even possible at this point since I took my exam in English lit?

    I think you should focus of receiving an offer to save the hassle. By the end of GCSE I may not wish to end my education in maths and apparently it's very easily to swap once your in, people even swap subjects a month in according to a current student (assuming you've received the grade needed).

    am I the only one who seems to find computing really tedious
    (Coursework) really I should have chose history instead
    (my three subjects chosen for gcse are computing geography and law)

    Although I find law pretty easy as there is no coursework (I'm the biggest victim of procrastination)

    I thought i was the only one! Computing coursework is extremely mundane and just boring. Theory isn't too bad.

    My coursework is around a B, but that entirely thanks to the first part (A452). The second part involves python and that's just another language to me.
