    I sat the exams for CLC last week and I’m fairly confident I’ll get a place there, otherwise maybe Ruthin/Exeter/Ampleforth and if worse comes to worst I’ll go to a grammar school round here. Maybe Judd, I don’t know.

    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.

    awh no, don't be like that! bear in mind that it's about more than just how you did in the tests, so I'm sure you have the intelligence to go there and it was probably just bad luck. after all there were so many applicants and they do have to whittle it down somehow.
    I'm just annoyed that I chose to do maths because I'm certain that's what let me down. that and the fact I said I wouldn't accept a regular place if not awarded a Queen's Scholarship probably didn't help my case either
