Hi,
I'm due to take entrance exams at both Westminster and St Pauls in the next week or so. Subjects I am taking for A levels are:
Economics, Maths, Geography and Art History.

Any up to date tips on recent tests would be great!
I am currently at a State school and predicted A's and A* and know it will be a challenge to get into these schools.

Would appreciate any tips on examinations. Thank you!

I'm doing the Westminster Exam too! I'm doing Maths (w/ further), Chemistry and Physics. For Maths, I was told it would be like the UK Maths Challenge, and it's all arithmetic, algebra and that sort of thing, but it mainly tests the way you think about the questions and interpret them. However I'm not sure if you can use a calculator.

Applying for Westminster too :/ really nervous, yeah maths is like the UK maths challenge and according to my friend who took the exam last year (and got in) the economics exam is based on general knowledge? () I go to SPGS right now and apparently the economics exam is much harder at SPGS and is more based on economics and calculations? hope that helps?

24th Nov are interviews, so I guess within 2 weeks or so prob or even earlier as oversea's students need to make arrangements to come for interviews.

BTW does anyone know what the interviews are like?

They will take a general interview as well as interviews in each subject I took exams in.

You get interviews for each of your subjects at St Paul's and a general one. The interview is actually just another verbal test in your subjects.
