    1. You go there, how could you possibly not know this?
    2. Ask a teacher, obviously.

    Did you have to take some kind of Entrance Exam? if so then it is Selective, otherwise No.

    I do not remember taking an exam when I got in, however I want to double check. I was wondering if there is like a list of all the schools that are selective or non selective?

    You could ask literally any teacher tomorrow, they work at the school and will obviously know about where they work. You should know about your own school.

    Its not a grammar or private school, and I do not remember taking an exam when I got in. I was just wondering if there is like an actual list of selective and non selective schools anywhere.

    I do not go that school anymore and also I am pretty sure its non-selective state school but I just want to double check online. Like is there any websites I can do that on?

    A lot of schools have a Wikipedia page which states this information, just type the name of your school followed by 'Wikipedia' into Google and you should find it. If you're not confident enough to ask a teacher this incredibly basic piece of information (or phone the school reception desk and ask them) then medicine is definitely not right for you. You will be constantly talking to people you don't know all day every day when you're a medical student and a doctor.

    I said I do not go to that school anymore. But thanks I will call the school reception desk if I can find it myself, but I wanted to get this done now rather then wait for tomorrow. Also I did try Wikipedia and other sites couldn't find anything.

    I think I do not know that from my work experience and volunteering. Also why would I bother my teachers by emailing them (since I don not go to that school), when I can work it out myself sooner or later.

    You could have found out the information you want through Google in less time than it took you to make your first post on here. You wouldn't have to email them if you wanted to come tact them to ask, you could easily call the school's reception desk number and literally ask if they're a selective school or not. The receptionist would tell you within a second, then you'd say thank you and goodbye and hang up the phone.
