General questions about sixth form admission (URGENT) Watch

    • Thread Starter

    My preferred choices for sixth form were Dulwich College and Alleyn's, but I've realised that for DC, the chances of you getting accepted as a day student is close to zero, and my family really can't afford to board. So I've been looking at Alleyn's. Turns out as of today (3rd of November), I've missed the admission deadline by two weeks. My parents will call them today to ask if Id be ok to be considered as well.

    So my questions are:
    Do you think that I have a chance at taking the entrance test for Allyen's?
    Is Dulwich College sixth form that hard to get in as a day pupil?
    If I get lucky and do get a chance at taking the entrance exam for Alleyn's, what should I expect? Do they assess you on the all the core subjects AND your chosen four?

    Im sorry if all of this sounded quite hectic and disoriented - its just i'm panicking cos i've been studying hard to move to a better school and I can't believe I've missed the deadline

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    These aren't good urgent questions because an extremely small proportion of people have been to either. In fact I've only ever seen one TSR person from Dulwich.

    That said DC does have contextualising offers for non privately educated people so you stand a higher chance of getting boarded if you aren't.
