    I made a reply several weeks ago saying how upset i was to be put on waiting list, and i was stubborn in the fact that i thought that this was the end of my application to woodhouse..

    But since then they have sent me a letter offering me a place!

    So you do still have a good chance of getting in even if you are on waiting list, i even called up and asked what else i could do to try get a place, and ended up writing the director of student services a letter.

    Perseverance pays off!!
    Good luck to all of you on waiting list, and to those who are going in september and to the introductory day i hope to see you there!!

    Hey, me too! I wrote them an email, asking them why I didn't get a place and then they called me up to tell me that my offer letter was on it's way
    Ahaha, who else is going then? I'll see you all there too in July! x

    Oh and well done in getting in.

    Awwh, at least you'll get a fresh start, I guess How comes you won't be there at the induction day? 6 people from my year are going there, including me. Don't worry, we'll all write our TSR names on our foreheads, and that way we'll know who's who What subjects are you taking?

    Hey, I didn't get to shout at them because they wouldn't answer my phone call
    I definitely don't think it's too late for you to do what I did, because the deadline for accepting offers is next week, and more people may be rejecting their places
    LOL! Ahaha, don't worry I won't neg you bak
    Thank you! I hope you get in too xx

    i think the best way to put is is, the fact that it is a selective school makes most people who go there quite smart. If you were one of the clever people at your secondary school, you will do well. you just have to remeber that a school with high standards has got a teaching system that allows teachers to teach them in a certain way.

    do not expect to be looked after is what i mean. woodhouse really REALLY encourages individual learning, in that teachers teach and do nothing else. whereas, say a secondary school, or a non selective college would encourage an individual, and do everything they can to help them achieve their best, woodhouse just expects you do do so.

    dont get me wrong, its a great place, and i have made the most amazing friends there, friends for life i hope. and my words mainly go out to the english department, and the maths department in my first year. its just that, you really need to be prepared to do a lot of the things yourself, and i guess its a very good warm up to uni.

    and i said flop them, not **** them up

    TBH, it doesn't really matter if the teachers are amazing or horrific, everyone who gets biology has to be very intelligent and thus, it doesn't really matter...
