    So I am taking the entrance exam for King Edwards VI (Stratford) next Saturday.
    I am doing half-hour exams on each of my chosen subjects (Chemistry, Biology, History, Philosophy). The letter in essence said that you don't need to revise because it is based on skills rather than recall, but I would like to revise. The only past papers I can find for sixth form entrance seem to be for private boarding schools, and despite the fact that I have achieved high As of low to high A*s in all my subjects for mocks, I am finding these papers quite hard and confusing.

    Anyone done the exam and know what to expect?
    Or have done similar exams and can give me advice on what to do?
    Any advice and understanding would be better than my confusion right now
    (I just really want to do my best and be prepared )

    Thank you
