I have applied for Harrow and I am confusing do I need to apply for Dulwich College or not. From admissions in Dulwich, they told me i will need to take 4 subjects as entrance tests. I want to take history as an AS subject but i don't think i will do very well in the entrance tests because english is not my first language. And is Harrow's entrance tests very difficult? I know schools like abingdon school, sevenoaks school tested a lot of syllabus we didn't cover for maths. I think I will take Maths and Chemistry as entrance tests subject for harrow school.

Apply for Dulwich College. The test is not that difficult. I pass that and they have given me an offer. I will start my sixth form there on Sep 2013

I applied to Harrow, Tonbridge, Abingdon and Dulwich.
Harrow rejected me but I got offers from Tonbridge and Abingdon, so I will not be taking the Dulwich exam anymore :P lol

The math paper is likely to be challenging for a(n) (i)GCSE student. Watch the time, in particular.

I also took the economics paper which was quite knowledge-based, and the chemistry paper was easy (for those who have taken IGCSEs).

Thank you for your reply!How can you do 3 papers? on harrow's website they says only test two subjects. Is maths paper like GCSE further maths or AS maths or just too many questions?

I took a standardized exam for entry arranged by Harrow which required us to sit in three papers. Maybe that is not the case for non-HK applications.
The topics can be regarded as IGCSE but just that it requires a bit of thinking, and extremely unappealing solution values since they test usage of methods, I would say.
