    I do double science surprisingly. I chose my options way back in year 8 and I didn't enjoy science then so didn't pick triple. I don't regret it at all though because I only have 3 science exams this year! To answer your question, we didn't have exams in science because we have not covered enough content yet. I think we may have some mocks in January

    You'll be fine for your mocks don't worry

    At the open evening the girl I spoke to said it was very casual and it's just typical q's- "Why do you want to come here"? What will you bring to greenhead? Career plans, extra curricular, hobbies etc

    Aware of what this might sound like, but is 4A* 3As 3Bs for mocks good enough considering the competition?

    If you've had your interview, how'd it go? Feel like you've got a good chance?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I have and tbf I think I do, I only put down 3 a levels and the lady was basically forcing me do do 4( which the top students do I think?) not to sound too up myself. My mocks are decent too so hopefully I'll get a place .

    How about you?

    Same! I wasn't particularly keen on doing four but she apparently wanted me to I put down further maths for my 4th option, which I hope I don't regret in the end lol

    Which options are you going for? I'm going maths, comp, econ, further maths

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I asked if I could get back to them, was thinking of doing biology,chemistry, maths and history. Unsure about maths though, depends what I get at GCSE. If I do maths then I might be in your class( highly unlikely tho aha)

    What do you want to do at uni?

    I asked her to put history down as a kind of reserve 4th so if I go that route we might have a better chance of being in the same class, woop woop \o/

    I don't really know what I want to do in uni, but I'm thinking computer science or economics :/ plenty of time to decide though. Wby?

    Should quote me or I won't reply on time
    Were you also in a little room by yourself? The lady I was with asked such strange questions, 2 weren't even about me, they were about my dad lol.

    Erm maybe law but still going to try and get experience for medicine too.. Was also thinking history lol. At my interview I kind of lied and said I 100% want to do medicine, so I could talk about my WE, so when I suggested German as a possible fourth she said no like 5 times 😳

    Whoops! Will do.

    I was, yeah, in a little office. The teacher who interviewed me was quite nice though; think she was a Chem teacher? Maybe you just have a really interesting dad

    Ah, that kind of backfired on you haha yeah but we do have some leeway in the first month to change options and stuff so it's not all bad, eh?

    I still don't even know if I want to go 😅

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I didn't ask what teacher she was but I wanted to aha oh well. Nah I doubt it, maybe she started off because I looked nervous .

    I'm definitely going I think, where else have you applied?
