    Hey everyone

    I'm just creating this thread for those who have applied to Woodhouse, for a place in September 2011. Who has received a reply from them? I'm still waiting for a reply

    Past, present and future students are welcome to post as well as those who have or had applied to this college once.

    Awesome

    I hear the waiting list moves very fast, so you still have a chance I think I may be joining you on that waiting list soon =/

    I still haven't even gotten a reply yet, and the thing that scares me the most is that apparently they send offers out by departments, and a girl I know got her offer yesterday and she chose the same subjects as me Maybe it's a rejection for me. Oh wells

    It's important not to feel demotivated if you do get rejected anyway.
    You need to get good exam results first!
    People that do get offered a place may fail their exams

    Yeah =/ I hear Woodhouse is overrated anyways, and it's not the BEST. What subjects did you apply for and what were your predicted grades when you applied?

    Woodhouse would have been a nice choice for me, about 25 minutes from my house.
    I applied for Maths, Further Maths, Physics, ICT.
    I would have done Chemistry but I'm not good at it, just scrapped an A at GCSE with 325 UMS (5 UMS in).
    I really hope ICT isn't the same as GCSE level, I would hate it!
    My interviewer was criticising my ICT choice too.
    Predicted grades (my sciences should be Chemistry, Physics and Biology):

    English C1
    Maths A*1
    Science A1
    Additional Science A1
    Triple Science A1
    Business Studies B1
    Citizenship C1
    ICT Distinction
    RE C2

    Not great

    Awwh, me too! Lot's of people who applied for the Sciences got their offers yesterday-I'm seriously worried now! The mail has arrived, but no letter from Woodhouse I think I'll be waiting listed, too. I emailed them today, asking about how they send offers out so when I get a reply, I'll update you

    Those are awesome grades! You got A's and A*'s in the subjects you wanted to do, so why didn't they offer you a place?!

    Do you guys do any extra-curricular activities?

    I got a reply to my email. I asked about when we will hear from them...this is what they replied:

    Letters regarding the outcome of interviews are going out this week. If you have not received anything by Friday please call the college to chase this for you. Due to the large number of letters going out we can only send them out in batches. Thanks for your patience.

    Best wishes


    OMG This is so daunting! We should know the outcome of our applications by this Friday...:eek:

    My interview wasn't great to be honest
    I had certificates of previous karate gradings (up to green belt), tennis tournaments and certificates from school.
    My interviewer didn't even ask to see them, nor did he ask why I wanted to go to Woodhouse
    We had a little chat about go karts and cars but he had limited knowledge so that didn't go too far.
    He wasn't happy with my A1s either, he said let's push those up to A*s...

    At first I didn't think it was going to be all that, I chose Business, Economics and Mathematics.. but after a few weeks I really started to enjoy it, the teachers do a great job in helping you achieve the highest grades and the people that go there are really cool aswell, bare fit gyalz lol. I left last year, but good luck and if you get in you will really enjoy it there

    That makes it good and bad in a way.
    Brilliant if you get in but disappointing if you don't.
    Did you get in straight away or was did you have to go on the waiting list.
