    So I have applied to London academy of excellence in Stratford with 9 predicted grades which are 7 biology 7 physics 8 chemistry. 7 English lit and language A business 7 French 7 history and 6 maths( the minimum requirement for maths is 6) so I think my maths will affect my chances of getting an interview.How many people get an interview? Are my grades too low? For people who have been through this process where you accepted for an interview and if so what were your predicted grades.Are the interviews that hard to get into

    hey I'm applying too, I don't have my predicted grades yet but I think they'll be pretty similar to yours, as for the maths, I'm hoping that as their requirement for maths is a 6, it shouldn't jeopardise your application, if theyre asking for a 6, they cant really say no if you have been predicted a 6. However, it depends what your A-Level choices are, like if you're taking maths or psychology, the website says you need an A/7. What are you thinking of taking? Also good luck in exams next year

    I understand that students at good schools get very attached to theirs, but I don't see how Brampton is any more prestigious than LAE. LAE is The Sunday Times' Sixth Form College of the Year 2015, and has ridiculous attainment despite only being up for around years. Every year has been even better in their attainment, and it is LAE that is renowned in the media as the East End Eton for sending so many people to Oxbridge, with 8 students last year. LAE is definitely in the top 5% of sixth forms.

    Also regarding the interview, it's ridiculously easy. You will sit in the hall against another member of staff and just talk about what your want to study at LAE. Just sound interested and say you want to study X degree at Oxbridge. Sound ambitious and ready to challenge yourself.

    You should definitely get an offer from LAE with those grades, your maths is fine as long as you aren't going to study maths, further maths or physics.
