Ahaha, I am back to ROCK YOUR WORLD AND ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS!
I did exactly the same thing with the sending it off on the very, very last day possible. Fear not.
I have not got straight A*s- I have 8 out of 10. Frankly, I'm not sure where this silly "million A*s = automatic win" thing has come from, but it's lies lies and more lies as far as I can tell. Selection procedures were done by department, and the people doing ours openly said that we were selected for "potential". Make of this whatever you will. They do seem to actively target a few people from London schools as well.
The library was open from 8 until 10, although it was always a rugby scrum to get a computer seeing as so many people needed them. Work was difficult, and you do get worn out, but there is recreation time in the afternoons in which you can do sport, swim or just relax for a while! We also played the Eton Wall Game and Fives, which is all good fun. And, as Lottie said, it's really not that big a deal if you've got people around you doing exactly the same things- you just get on with it!
You got one of them right, and I only remember them because I'm so stomach orientated that I remember we were generally eating at 7!
I've applied because my head of sixth form recommended it to me - but considering they only take ~120 people I doubt I'll get in!
Does anyone know anything similar to the Eton college summer school that accepts applicants from independant schools?
I applied for maths, and second choice maths with physics, though i'm not going to get my hopes up. when do they let you know if you're in or out? is it the first week of april?
I found out when I was at the Cambridge Sixth Form Law Conference which, if I remember correctly, was the last week of March.
Good luck everyone with your Eton applications. I went, and it was a great two weeks, plus a real eye-opener, but in a good way. You get to meet loads of different, interesting people who are committed to their work, plus some really rather brilliant teachers.
Are we supposed to have found out already?
Im almost positive I heard someone say they were notified during the last week of march/first week of april...
O ok, not long then.
Anyone applied to do maths? Hope I get in, everyone seems to say its really good. Plus the content sounds really gd as well
haha i wonder what it was based on though...?
Did anyone get in??
Either of you going to have a crack at any of the ones offered at other places (i think king's, cambridge do one)?
