    I hope at the end of it all, I get into oxford anyway.
    Without a doubt though, going to a private school is an easier access route.

    same, really disappointed but I hope I get into Cambridge anyway. To be fair, getting into Westminster is probably even harder than getting into Oxbridge. One thing for sure is that acceptance rate is much lower at Westminster than at Oxbridge.

    I guess I can forward to you the papers I would have been looking at right now for the general paper which you sit on the interview day.
    Would you mind if you pm'ed me your email? Just to share it with you on google-docs, It is a good collection of 50-60 general or tsa papers similar to the westminster ones and most are around 20 minutes long.
    My plan was to do atleast 3 every day. Oh well.

    I did not get an interview offer for Westminster School, despite being so confident that I would given my impeccable educational background.
    I bet they gave my place to a state schooler
