I've got rejected from most Sixth Forms Watch
Those are the GCSEs I actually got and I got offered a place at one of the best schools in my city My predicted grades were higher but I know people who've gotten in with all Bs so maybe it was your interview and personal statement
Often depends on the amount of places they have available. If they have say 20 places and 60 applicants, then they can pick the ones they like the best. You've already been accepted into two I wouldn't worry about it too much.
Had a quick look at a few and Woodhouse, for example, "is a popular and oversubscribed" school. That's the first line on their website. I think simply the problem is that they get a lot of applicants and can't take everyone in. By the looks of things the schools you listed are decent so naturally will be competitive to get into.
So do you have any advice on what I should do? I applied to an average school around my area but I don't want to go to far unless the education is worth the travel. So I'm really confused on what to do
