    Hey, I recently applied to King Edward VI Aston and got an offer a few days after my interview, I was wondering if there is anyone else who attends the School or who is an external candidate like me? I know the possibilities are very slim aha.
    Thanks

    Its amazing how we've revived a forum from 2011.
    Anyway...
    I am also applying to king Edwards Camp Hill and Five ways.
    I'll let you know what comes up in my interview - what do you think they'll ask? And BTW, they said its a 'brief' interview so I don't thinks its something to worry about too much;

    About the GCSEs, as I've said Iv'e completed 3 so now I can focus on the rest.

    What courses have you applied for?

    i got an offer from KEA today.. and got an offer from QMGS.. i pick QMGS since its closer to where i live .. so i wont be going KEA

    But ... im not going to decline it has lower conditional grades then qmgs,,so if i dont get the required results for qmgs ill go there (although i think i will get the 4A's 3B's that qmgs want) lol

    Hi I've applied to QMGS, King Edwards Camp Hill, KEFW, Aston and a few more to study maths, further maths, physics and chemistry. Could anyone please tell me what these schools usually ask at the interview? How tough is it to get into these schools at sixth form? Hope to meet some of you guys soon!

    Aston is pretty simple, if you appear to be an intelligent, well-behaved pupil with good aspirations, you're likely to be invited, as long as you get the grades ofc. pretty simple questions are asked, eg why those subjets what you want to do when you're older, what you do extra-curricular wise etc. if you have Mr Parker then it's prett easy cos he does most of the talking. good lcuk

    I didnt go to Aston but generally it's alright going as an external student. It's tough to break into the friend groups at first but it gets better after a while. You should concentrate on your grades more because they are quite important.

    Hi zeed
    Nice to know you've reached the interview stage
    To be honest it depends what teacher you get for your interview... But most of them are pretty relaxed
    You will be asked the basic questions ( what you want to study why you want to study these specific subjects and future hopes and ambitions pretty much what you said on your personal statement) they will also ask you what can you bring to the school ( leadership skills etc...) and they will also ask you why you want a place at this specific sixth form
    Hope ive been useful
    Best of luck for your interview

    Hi there. I am currently in year 10 going into 11 in september at QMGS and want to move to King Edwards Aston in Sixth Form because it takes 10 mins to get there and takes me 30 to QMGS everyday and has been for the last 4 years or so. My brother went to King Edwards Aston and now going into his second year at sixth form. King Edward Aston is a very good school , maybe better than QMGS and wondered if ANYONE HAS RECEIVED OFFERS FROM THEM AND WHAT GRADES THEY HAVE HAD OR EXPECTED, I KNOW THERE ARE ENTRY REQUIRMENTS BUT I WANT TO KNOW WHAT SORT OF GRADES WILL DEFINITELY GET ME A PLACE WHEN I GIVE MY APPLICATION IN SOON. REPLY ASAP
