Not sure if this is in the right place, but whatever.
I'm currently in year 11, in the process of applying to college. I've narrowed my options down to the following:
- Peter Symonds
- Farnborough Sixth Form
- Queen Mary's College
I live near Basingstoke, so the commute to PSC would be a train and a walk, FSFC would be a train, bus and walk, and QMC would just be a bus.
I've been to all the open evenings, but I think there's things they don't tell you on those evenings, like for example at my school we have an annoying as hell stamp system. You wouldn't hear that at open evening. You also don't hear the college's reputation - my friend ended up going to a terrible secondary school because she liked the campus, but as soon as she got there she realised how bad it was. You wouldn't have been able to tell from their open evening.
So does anyone have any information about the reputations of the colleges, whether it's worth the commute, and any small little things they do? (like force you to take General Studies, as I saw in a 2013 post about Farnborough)
If you need any more info before advising, feel free to ask. I didn't wanna tell you my life story because that would've made a very long post aha.
