    I just looked at the dress code and saw 'no extreme hairstyles'.

    :/ I'm not sure if mine counts as extreme. It's just kinda long, would they not allow that?
    Now THAT part they exaggerate BIG time dont worry about it at all they dont really care, we have boys here with hair touching their eyes and nothing is said.

    I went there for sixth form three years ago... I had average GCSEs. They like to play up their reputation a lot and remind you that you're "lucky to be here".
    Depends on what your taking. Like I said places this year are less so their is more competiton, also if people with A*'s apply they are more likely to apply.

    Still kudos to you

    Its alright dont worry about it
    Ah thats basically a designated time in your timetable where you either go to the sixth form study are or the library to do work. I love the library so I would go there its like revising in a way but you can do homework, catch up work whatever it is as long as its work related to your studies

    Oh, thanks so much for telling me this! I was really worried that they might reject me solely from looking at my application. How did you do in the interview? I had mine today and I thought I was looking a bit... scruffy? I felt really out of place with everyone in their school blazers, short clean haircuts and everything.

    I've got my A* in maths and predicted a few more A*s, a few As and a couple Bs. Am I just stressing over it for no reason?
    well when i had my interview, they called me up in the middle of the day when i was in ilford with ma mates, so didnt really have the best "smart" look loool. i dont think it really what you looked like as long as they can tell that your genuinely a good student and alryt with the subject you choose
