    Hey so sorry for the Super, late reply.
    Well tbh it's all up to you. But I have no experience/ know how Grammer Schools are like,
    since I'm going to a Sixth Form.

    But I've heard good impacts in the way Grammer Schools have transformed students towards their education.
    For example:

    (1) Strong exam results

    It is argued that grammar schools can deliver good results because teachers can push pupils harder, knowing that only the most able students are in the classroom. Selective state schools have produced some of the best performances in exam league tables.

    But as I mention before, It's all your choice.
    Have you been to any Induction Days or Open Evening?
    Maybe you could experience how it's like to be a Student in the Grammer School/Sixth Form.

    Hope this helps.
    Thanks, yep i've been to 3 induction day where i did 1 subject a day (3 hours) but...... I dont know.... It just seemed weird so i chose to go to the sixth form college

    Btw, what is the difference between sixth form and sixth form college ad college?

    Yeah, they had interviews before but they stopped having 'em from this year I believe. They just looked at my personal statement, which they seemed to LIKE coz they told my dad that on the phone, and my predicted grades.

    I had one interview for the college and got a place, in fact I applied for like 5 other crappy sixth forms and got a place straight after the interview.

    I know this is really strange but yeah, I haven't seen the school
    Its known to be like the 'BEST' school in the area, and other areas too for that matter.
    Oh okay, i never had to make a personal statement....... Dont even know how u make it

    That's cool, I'm going to a Sixth form.

    Sixth forms
    You may be able to study at your own school’s sixth form, the sixth form of another school, or at a sixth form college. They offer a wider range of options, and the environment is likely to be a bit more relaxed than in Year 11.Sixth forms vary a lot in size, and in the courses and facilities they offer. Sixth form colleges tend to be larger and more informal than school sixth forms

    Further education college
    Further education colleges can offer similar courses to sixth form colleges. They also vary a lot in size, and in the subjects and facilities they offer.You might be surprised to find that some of the students are adults of all ages as well as young people. There will be both full and part-time learners studying vocational subjects as well as those studying academic courses.

    Sixth form college

    Sixth Form Colleges tend to be more informal and comfortable environments in comparison to School Sixth Form centres. The independence you are given at a Sixth Form College helps bridge the gap between school and university/a career very well. At school your teachers will chase you to get your work done, but at a Sixth Form College they won’t quite so much; it is up to you and you alone to keep up-to-date.

    I got help from someone

    You just have to summarise your situation and tell 'em why you wanna go to that PARTICULAR school (obv using good vocab)

    Mine was a little easier as my current/previous school is sh*t, and the students get sh*t grades, I wrote about my school's GCSE pass rate, which was like 23% in 2014, so I knew that if I mention that and then they look at my predicted grades, they would be impressed even though I may not have 10 A*'s, coz coming from a school where people get mostly D's, F's and U's, getting a few A*'s(in my case) is equivalent or more than getting 10A*'s in a high performing school, to them.

    So I guess you could say I got lucky, however when I say teaching at my school was sh*t, I mean SH*T!

    And I'm also fortunate that I realised that I had to get good grades about 4/5 months ago and started studying, coz at that time I was getting D's, F's and U's for most, if not all, of my subjects(Including English, Maths and Science)

    23%......... Seriously that's....... Super low... You must have self taught yourself there , but that shows how clever and independent you are , if i was the sixth form i would have begged you to come there....

    WELL DONE BRO !!!!!!! proud of you (now i feel well inferior than you coz am not expecting to get ALL A*s eventhough i come from a good school (well better than yours at least) :ashamed2:.... But still am fine with that

    Yeah, its super sh*t

    I did self teach myself, yeah, had to

    I'm not clever at all, I would say I'm average.

    WTH!! I'm not superior to no one, just coz I went to a sh*t school, doesn't mean I'm superior to anyone, I hate when people think they're superior or even inferior, its not your fault I went to a sh*t school!

    It has taught me and helped me a lot though, in terms of independent learning and not relying on teachers for almost ANYTHING.

    Not everyone gets all A*'s, as long as you're happy with yourself, no one can say anything to you

    Thanks for the kind words

    btw, nice use of emojis
