    So many schools. Thanks for the motivation, you have excellent predicted grades! Good luck with your Westminster application and I'm surprised you didn't go there after dulwich prep. What school do you currently go to now if you don't mind me asking also how are you revising for the Kings Maths School aptitude test? Its on the 9th December I believe.

    i agree, the exams were quite difficult. in a weird way i found CLC’s geography and biology harder than westminster’s, but I think that’s because they were gcse style questions with gcse knowledge and I hadn’t bothered revising much

    Me, inspiring? I don't think so but thank you for your comment
    I'm quite humble. I never actually set foot in a private school till september 11 2017, westminster open day.
    I've never in my life been to a grammar school and I'm purely state educated and from east london
    I'm the product of my hard work and I hope my work ethic and passion for studying/ my studious character reflects the gcse results i open next august.

    Hey I saw this thread a while ago and now I finally decided to post on it (didn't have an account)

    I currently go to spgs in hammersmith and I applied for Westminster School 2018 entry. I do believe I will be offered for an interview at this school and if so, I probably will accept a place.
    I didn't apply to any other school although many girls in my year are applying for KCS because they just want to hang around boys lol
    how did u find ur other exams i found all quite tricky
