Sorry to bother but you seem really knowledgeable about CSFC cuz you're a student there - I was just wondering whether you could answer some of my questions
I've got an offer from CSFC for Sept 2019 intake and one from OIC, and I'm having a bit of trouble choosing which one to go to.
- I know Yasmin left CSFC a while back for OIC, was there a particular reason for this? I heard some kinda sketchy stuff but not sure what to believe haha
- What is the accommodation like? And the teachers? And just more deets on the overall atmosphere too lol
- I think I've practically scoured all of Google for anything I can find on the 2 schools, I found this article https://thetab.com/2016/03/18/britai...learning-72257
from a former CSFC student and I have no idea what to think - your thoughts please?
Thank you so so much, any advice at all would be super helpful!
I was in the same situation, both gave me scholarships
People said that she didn’t like the new buyer of the school but at the time there was financial issues but it happened the year before me and the school seems to go on just fine
The accommodations are really nice (compared to other boarding schools) and is definitely nearer to school than wavy gates to oic (if you treasure convenience) and is 2 mins away from town centre.
Teachers are fab (they actually made me interested in all my chosen subjects) and if I didn’t say I started Chemistry at A Levels and I’d say I’m picking it up well
Well I’d say most people come here quite brainy, but well most schools are a business here. I’d say the atmosphere here helps you to learn how to maintain a work life balance to adapt to uni. I’ve heard OIC has been wanting to push grades up and has been a really harsh cram school by having 12 hour days or more. CSFC doesn’t really force you but people do their own studies. The thing is everyone has their own way of studying and there is no perfect way to push grades up. The teachers are often in at weekends if students have problems and they will all be here during half terms and easter.
I’d say dm me for personal questions, I thought it would be a cram school here before I came but it actually made me find my interests in Maths and they have a absolutely fav STEP teacher here and helps you to prep from AS which is super useful.
