Right now you're on track, but the London Academy of Excellence is really competitive so I recommend working extremely hard in RE to turn that C into at least a B and try to turn those As into A*s

It's hard to say.

Your predicted grades are the bare minimum but you have to remember you're competing against everyone else who wants to get into the London Academy of Excellence and that's a lot of people who all have similar grades to you. A lot of them would also have good grades so if I were you I would start revising now if you haven't already.

I don't want to give you false information since I don't know how they do it. You should ask them:

Seven Kings - definitely, all of your grades pass the entry requirements
Brampton Manor - they require a grade point average of 6.5, yours is 6.56

Again, it depends on who else is applying since you're competing against everyone else. What matters though, is that it isn't impossible you still have a chance.

Yes you do have the minimum requirements but remember, grades are not everything. Since your predicted grades meet the minimum requirements, it's likely you will get an interview placement. It's important that you shine in your interview since there will be a lot of other students competing against you with higher grades. It's up to you to show them at your interview that you a capable of achieving better and hopefully, come March time you will get a conditional offer.

If you don't get a conditional offer then everything rests on your GCSE results. You shouldn't think about your chances. Ultimately it's up to you to obtain those grades through hard work. I was predicted A's and B's but I overachieved by pushing myself, and was able to get 5A*s 4As and 2Bs. You can do this too.

Its near my school then I go to the palmer catholic academy.
Could you help me with the interview questions they ask and how I could respond to them.
As for example, the question "why do you wish to join our sixth form". I really dont
know how to respond to that.
and any other techniques i could use during the interview to help improve my grade.

That's where my knowledge ends. I haven't done any interview prep yet so I can't help you there. You should ask your Head of Year for help or Sixth Form Director if you have one.

Thank you regadless. Your advice has been really helpful to me and I am hoping to bring up an outstandard perception of myself in front of the interviewers. Thank you. One last thing I wanted to ask you is what was ur ideal revision plan or tips to get
excellent results in gcses. I hope I can get the results you achieved!!

I would say start now. My biggest regret was leaving it till a few weeks before the exams.

LOOK AT YOUR SPECIFICATION! I cannot stress this enough. GCSE specifications tell you everything you need to know. What I did for my GCSEs was I went over every single point on the spec for each subject and made questions based on what was mentioned in the spec. Come exam time, a lot of the questions I made up came on the paper.
