    My friend thinks most people here do, so please vote in this poll to see if he's correct or not

    Can't vote in the poll on the app, but nope. I went to a state secondary school and now go to a state sixth form college.
    While there are some who go to private schools or grammar school, a lot don't!

    there are quite a few students from grammar and private schools, (TSR attracts high-achieving students so this is always bound to be the case) but I certainly wouldn't say that they're a majority.

    I'd say the majority go to state schools tbh :3

    I go to a state school (in their sixth form) that is currently in special measures. Never a dull day.

    I went to a grammar school and came out with 11 A*’s for my GCSEs. I then did Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology for A level and got 5 A*’s. I then went to Cambridge to study medicine and came out with a first.

    When you get round to it this may get more attention (because it's quite interesting) if this poll wasn't public.:dontknow:

    I'd take a guess and say that there are more privately educated/grammar school educated people on TSR than what would be found in general, but I guess that's just the kind of people that the site attracts. I personally go to my local state comprehensive which is probably the most average school you could possibly think of in terms of results.

    I'll be doing two additional GCSE's this year on top of 10 A*'s and 3 A's. I also hope to do a 6th A-Level in Italian next year on top of Maths Physics, Chemistry, Further Maths and Electronics. Prepare to get beaten on all counts.
