    What school should I go for?

    School 1:

    Strong Religious and Church of England influence
    Elitist students from strong background
    Great intellectual students
    Amazing teachers
    Strict and often unfair punishment
    Fairly bad equipment/poor school
    Focus on academic progress and succeed to doing so
    Amazing track record
    Pretty Hogwarty
    However outside school achievements are not supported
    Its an academy
    Do not seem to be very understanding at the sight of student problems


    or HWSF (Use your own experience with the school to compare with school 1).
    There's a lot of factors you need to take into consideration, like 'which is closest', 'how will I get along with others there', but I think the most important factor is the statistics being achieved at the school. Knowing that HWSF has no statistics yet it can be difficult choosing, but I'm personally trusting them as I'm fully convinced that I can achieve the best studying there. Hope that helps.

    Well, the other school is closer than hwsf by about 40 minutes, Ill get along with both people (probably hwsf people more as they are new as well, the other school, kids will already know each other and so i may be an outcast (very very very very very very very low chances of that happening)). Yeah, I hope ill do good in both.

    hi does anyone know that if you do not get a A in one of your chosen subjects, can you change it for one you have got an A in. I have chosen to study music, chemistry, maths and physics. If I didn't get an A in physics, would I be able to do biology instead if I got an A. cheers

    I'm slightly confused about this induction day. Are those lectures part of the induction or is it something entirely separate?
    Also have you received an e-mail or something about the induction etc.?

    I might go to the maths one- it depends on how I feel about revision though because my triple science exams are on the following week :/

    I'm worried I might not be able to get an A for maths; if I do not get the grade is it possible to change it to english language? I regularly get a* in English but I'm doing maths for economics in uni

    The induction day is not the lectures definitely, letters will be sent regarding the induction day. The lectures are under another subheading. I'm not going to English, never was liked English, the maths lecture is happening two days before my Further maths exam. so no :/
