Hi guys.
I come from China and planing to take an entrancing exam in Westminster School this Saturday. But I have no idea what should I prepare for the exam>_<

I’m going to do maths, economics, physics and biology. Anyone have any tips about how to revises and what exam board they are using? And anyone going to do the same subject as me?

I’m so nervous (。ì _ í。)

Thank you very much!

Hey! Sorry you didn't get any replies, and sorry I'm so late to this. You couldn't really prepare for the entrance exams anyway, it's all applied knowledge. I did the same as you, except chemistry instead of economics, and I'm through to interviews now (so nervous!). But how did ur exams go???

Hi!
How was the biology, math, and physics exam? Was it hard? Do you get to know how many you got right and wrong? What kind of questions do they ask you?

I guess with good revision, it's not too bad. The interviews etc. are not really about your exam, it's just about general knowledge from there. But physics was the most difficult for me personally because it wasn't just about memorising content, but applying it to maths and all sorts of contexts and situations. Maths, I never really know what to say because maths could be anything, so I guess... just practice papers meant I was quite well prepared. Biology, unlike physics, was more ccontext based, so it was easy to figure out from that. Hope this helps!

I have applied for Westminster sixth form entry next September 2020 and have chosen to sit the Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Maths papers. The exams are coming next weekend, would anyone know how hard are these papers are? I mean I know they are definitely harder than the GCSE level but can you give some more specific examples eg is how many UKMT maths type of questions on the Maths paper? I am worried about the Physics paper the most.

I didn't do econ, but the maths is fine. I don't completely remember specifics but the exams are definitely based on GCSE knowledge, you just needm to be quick at adapting it to the questions they give you
