    I found the A-Level statistics in detail from my guardian.
    But I also heard some negative comments about QE.

    And I really doubt why the college had just 6 students who got places in Oxbridge.
    Ps. you'd better book the flight ticket early.

    And there are so many students from both mainland and hk enter QE each year. I just finished oxford english test in no more than half an hour, the logic exam was also such an easy exam. After getting my IELTS score, I received the offer so quickly. It was so 'unbelievably easy' that I doubted whether the college was not an 'excellent' school as they said. Do you think so?

    Well, to others the test might not seem so easy. At least to me the aptitude test is a little difficult. The English test was fairly easy though tbh.
    About the school's "excellence", I honestly don't know... according to my own experience every academically excellent school is a "jail". As for the staff, tbh, don't expect too much from teachers. Sometimes we just have to learn ourselves

    LOL, I have finished AS further mathematics and biology. Honestly speaking, I doubt QE's real ability because 29 students in Brighton College have got offer from Oxbridge last year even it's A Level statistic is a little bit lower than QE's. Sometimes I worry about wasting a full year in the school as well as the expensive fees.
    I wish we would have a nice experience in QE.
    Besides, I will fly to Manchester on Sep.2,at 1:00 am in HK airport, will you take the same flight?
