Hey guys

Does anybody know what does the one-term taster involve ? Also is there a possibility to start it in the 2nd semester of this year in January ?
Lastly does the transition from the taster to A-levels involve ?

I am an international student from Slovakia studying at UWC Mahindra College of India, however I am considering the change due to poor academic teaching quality.

Many thanks
Jan

There is a January Intake program and I think you should make a initial enquiry for it. Basically you’ll do 3-4 AS subject and have the exams by May/June.
Haven’t quite seen people joining taster term.


Cheers
Chloe

As early as possible, it is not just registering for it but a series of exams

There is no deadline, but the later you apply the less spaces there are

Depends on your fee paying status
I think the college website actually tells you how it is like but for mine it is an extra paper for each subject you are going to do in A Levels

Hi there, im also interested in attending csfc in September 2019. Went to visit the sch earlier this month and was told really good things about it. But I just wanna know some honest opinions from a student currently studying there. How is it there? Is it true that most students go to top universities? Or are opportunities only reserved to the extra talented? How is the study and social life like ?

I just got accepted in csfc, I just wonder how's life there. Is it really tough and require a lot of effort that I'll likely be stressed out soon? I only have a few days to consider

It’s not too stressful but they expect you to be kinda hardworking in the sense of getting good grades
There will be people who don’t revise and some who revise every moment
It’s more like your way of adapting

Your name makes me think of the Youtube Channel Violin MD🤔 are you two related

Haha this is a weird question but I just came across this chat and maybe I should ask about it. The uniform now seems a little different from the ones I see on the school web, like the ties? Also, for girls they wear black stockings but how thick were they? I know there are thicknesses like 80D or 120D. Thank you so much as I really wanna prepare for my next school year

You choose your own thickness and the new ASes have new uniform but there has been issues with the manufacture so I’m not sure how that’s going to be
If it’s cold days I get my 80D ones but when it’s a hot summer day probs a 20D is fine

I see, thanks. People usually stay in ensuite single rooms or ensuite studio rooms? I guess ensuite single rooms are big enough and suitable if you're not cooking?
