Same! I'd love if you could message me about what the Maths and Chemistry exams are like, I'm applying this year and need as much know how as possible aha
I did the entrance tests last year and I go to the school now. Maths was ridiculously hard! And that's coming from someone who was doing A-level maths at the time. However, they say that they alternate between papers over 3 years (easy, medium and hard) so our year got the hard maths exam. Biology and Chemistry were much easier though. I think the best thing is to revise for it as if it was an actual GCSE exam because the types of questions are the same (or even harder) than GCSE. Also, for sciences, try and look over the stuff you did in year 10 because there were some questions that came up which i only vaguely remembered. Good Luck!

Thank you so much! And I've already done my Maths GCSE last summer but I've forgotten quite a bit, I think I'll need to be revising again. And science, were the questions phrased similarly to the way they are in actual GCSE exams? And thanks once again, that was really helpful

80 in total, yes and because it's a boys school and they want to keep a balance, I think about 50 girls generally get in (they make up roughly 25% of the 6th form)

I'm in Olaves' sixth form and tbh if you want to do Spanish it probably isn't the best place :/ olaves is definitely more science and maths orientated and the new external students tend to pick up the slack on the arts side. Regardless the school is amazing because of the people. When I got in I felt so much at home, there will be a group of people like you, you really can't generalise. The guys are friendly and the students are very diverse - there are the really geeky academic people but there are also those that are always out to have a good time.

And yes it is true, we are incredibly cocky and proud of it . There was a facebook hate group about the cockiness and in the end it got swamped by olavians and we were it's only members cept 5 people lol. It's not really a bad thing, we know we are in one of the best schools in the country and therefore some of the brightest students and proud to acknowledge that. Once you join olaves it doesn't matter what school you were in, you're now a part of the school, the cockiness tends to irritate other schools because they know we really are better than them
what would you need in grades to get in st olaves do you think this is good enough:
*=8a=7b=6
8maths
8maths+
7 bio
7phy
7 chem
7 eng lang
7 eng lit
7 geo
6 pe
6 sph
7 dt
7 rp

I have received conditional offer from st olaves. Does everyone receive the same? Do they do an unconditional offer for anyone? I'm confused

Same everyone who has received an offer has to get 64 points to get in e.g 1 a* and 8as or 2a* 6as and 1b or 3a*s 4as and 2b etc
