    Hey Izzy! when i was 11 i passed my 11 plus which got me in.......... you need VERY good grades if you're an external candidate at GCSE level but your grades should be fine, apply nice and early and get your current school to give them good references

    boarding IS VERY expensive, and a lot of people from china come over
    also each year group has about 50 people........ and the teacher-student relationships are good

    yer i no, i ve read on CRGS website about chinese ppl coming to study in CRGS. So how do u think should i apply there?applying for places for entry in september 2005 starts in october, that means that by this date I will be only in the beginning of year 11, when I wont have my gcse results yet. I m a bit confused how to apply, dunno where to get application form.

    ok well the people that are currently in year 10 and 11 are at a more advantageous position as they have 1) passed the entry test and 2) have been studying at the insitution for the past few years

    get your application in early to show you're dedicated and really go for them GCSES ...... the competition is so stiff for external candidates - there is competition from people GLOBALLY and theoretically its one of the best sixth forms in the UK

    I wrote an e-mail, stating that I would like to apply for 6th form in CRGS. However the admission officer said that I should come on the open evening, which is in novermber 2004 and if the application round starts in october 2004 I miss one month of competition for a place.lol. I would prefer not to miss it, therefore I m a bit confused wat to do.

    I would hope that, like universities, they select the best candidates regardless of educational background - positive discrimination shouldn't be important.
