    yeah i saw so many maths and chem which worries me bc i picked both lol, as well as french and history. how were you exams? i imagine all writing based subjects must be hard
    Oh gosh, how are you doing an A Level in French?!
    And I think the exams were okay? I'm not too sure, I feel as if my answers were really basic and weren't unique or impressive but I think I'm just being picky because they felt pretty good to me.

    But doing all writing subjects is kind of a scary thing because people say A Levels are a lot of work anyway so with all that writing I imagine it's going to be rather difficult.

    Me neither, don't lose hope though! When they sent out the information about the test I got mine a day later than everyone else, don't assume you didn't get in until tomorrow (or Monday).

    Don't worry, they send letters to everyone regardless of whether they get in or not.

    thanks !!
    i know how you feel- i was dead set on leaving but now the time has come closer i'm really considering staring at my school. but i think it's really important to go out of your comfort zone and push yourself so i think leaving would be the better option !!

    If you haven't got an offer yet, don't worry about it. One could come tomorrow or Monday but if they don't, what is the point in being sad?

    Many people think going to St Olaves or any other school is going to miraculously improve your grades and get you into these great universities. The truth is that you would only improve by as many grades as you put the effort in for, and schools like St Olaves work you to the bone to get those grades. However, if you go to any other school and work off of your own back then you are just as likely to get the same grades as you would have gotten if you went to a school that pushed you to do that amount of work.

    The moral of the story? The school you get into does not have to affect how well you end up doing. In many cases, if you did not get into St Olaves then you most likely would have despised the style of teaching there. Why not just enjoy your Sixth Form life while working to your limits rather than go to a school that would push you beyond your limits?

    Ultimately, it doesn't matter if you didn't get in.
