    Absolutely do not state that you will and only will accept a 100% bursary.

    I've been rejected from Westminster and Harrow despite being an academically vehement and gifted student which I believe is because of this,
    While Eton and Latymer Upper have offered me places and I stated I'd like to receive a 50-75% bursary knowing full well that when it comes to the means tested process I will most likely qualify for a 95%-100% bursary.

    It just increases competition and you are more likely to be compared with other candidates.
    Reality is most schools only have one full bursary student and a bunch of 5% bursary'ers
