    I'm thinking of applying here, is anyone else? Does anyone know what you would need to get in or what they would like? Is it good? I am going to apply but they need a 300 (I think) word personal statement so I am waiting until I am definitely sure of what I want to say before I apply.

    I just finished my application yesterday.
    You need 5 GCSE's grade 6 to get in.
    I went to the open day and it was really good . Did you go?

    I went the the open evening on the Thursday and I thought it was really good as well, what did you put in your personal statement? I did the application thing yesterday but when I got to the personal statement part I got a bit caught off guard cause I didn't know that there were two and that you had to put it into bullet points.

    I'm a senior student in my last year at KEDST - if you guys want any questions answered then feel free to ask. I know we do really good as a college at sciences so I wouldn't worry about them being hard as results for those subjects seem to be much higher than others, and there's a lot more work placements available. I wouldn't worry about the personal statement so much - when I had my interview here it was barely even mentioned. Just as long as you make it clear why you want to study here particular it should be ok
