    Expect it to be more like a university interview than an 11+ interview. Show that you are passionate about the subjects that you are doing (extra reading, lectures etc). It also helps if you do research on the school, wikipedia is a good place to start. Identify societies and things that the school offer that you would like to start, and most importantly show charm and charisma, they will all sacrifice a few A*s for a boy that has bags of charm and charisma, and you wont stand a chance if you have neither, even if you have 15 A*s. Hope that helps
