    I've applied to do a late one, which is next week. Could anyone, preferably who have done the maths and theology/philosophy exam tell me what it was like? (Just so I have a small idea what I'm up for)
    Many thanks

    I did a maths scholarship test at another private school for sixth form. Section A was GCSE level stuff which everyone was expected to be able to do and was the same as the entrance exam. The one I did was just questions that were common to all different exam boards.

    I also looked at some philosophy past papers (I didn't do this but I glanced at them alongside the others). They were mainly questions that made you think as they wanted to see how you reacted to a given statement about key issues such as abortion or euthanasia. They weren't looking for whether you had learnt about the topics neccessarily but they were looking at the thought process behind what you were answering.

    Hope this helps and good luck!

    The maths exam is really easy, you have plenty of time, and as long as you know your GCSE maths well you'll be fine! I think the last question asks about a Rhombus (if they haven't changed the exams since I did it, just telling you because I didn't know what a Rhombus was). There should also be an arithmetic test and a vocab test! Good Luck!! I think most late applicants get in anyways (I applied late too).

    Haha , They clean up your rooms, but you have to change the sheets (Once a week), at least that is what happens to boys in my house.
