    I can't believe they were so hard. I'm an A* student in almost all my subjects and I'm pretty sure I failed every test,including my strongest subject.

    The Maths questions I barely completed. Some questions I barely wrote anything on the page.

    A bit of a pointless post, but i need to vent.

    I know, I did Maths, Economics, Politics and History. It was crazy. I could barely understand the graph in Economics and wasn't the slightest bit ready for the essay question. How has Economics helped the world?

    The graphs were so confusing, how do i know what MDC or MBC are, or whatever they were.
    I wrote about the middle east and stabilising governments - utter rubbish basically.

    art for me, they only looked at one piece -_-

    Same. I was stressing out on all the papers. On the site the practice questions looked pretty easy but on the paper the questions were so damn hard.

    Agreed, that what was so off putting the fact that the practice exam questions were pretty easy, so you just assumed you were going to be okay.

    I really liked that school as well.

    Unfortunately you will have to attend school on a Saturday. If it is any consolation, we do get exeats when we don't have to attend school on a Saturday and Saturday school finishes at 1 O'Clock. We also have an extra week added to most holidays. If you can't make Saturday school then I would recommend contacting the school to check if any arrangement can be made.

    i know this reply is like a year late... but i was just wondering, did any of you guys that took the economics entrance exam study it as GCSE? because i've chosen it as one of my entrance exam subjects this year and am slightly worried about if it's going to be aimed at people who already do it (which i don't).
    Thanks!
