Hey Guys!

As you may know the entrance exam is coming up for KCLMS, and I REALLY want to attend this school. I've been revising the spec paper however I am still super nervous about this exam, apparently about 400 people are applying and only 75 get in, with this knowledge im growing more and more nervous!!

Any tips on these types of maths questions is heavily appreciated.

i think the test is more about examaning the way we think rather than the actual score so i dontthink the anwsers would mattermuch, as the triangle one where u had to get x the one you guys are on about? if so ho did u get it cose i wasnt sure of my method. Also what did u get for the last 2 cose they screwed m over bad

No, I don't think so otherwise they would've posted the paper and solutions.

My friend's sitting it on Wednesday so I can find out then. Don’t see why they’d change it; it would make determining an interview pass mark a lot harder for them (but then again they are a maths school?)

Ok, sorry. How did you revise for the test and what did you find hard?

No need to apologize. I just sat the specimen paper once. To be completely honest, I didn't find any of it hard per say. I just didn't answer question 17 as I hate diagram questions though I finished the rest with about 20 minutes to spare. What about you?

Just popped in to say that some candidates might sit the exam in January on the same day as the interviews if they were sick or unable to attend on the official exam day.

Our son is now at KCLMS - he's a strong maths student but didn't find the sample specimen or the actual KCLMS entrance exam easy. He did enjoy the interview though. For the interview they teach you a new piece of maths and then ask you to answer some questions. A bit like an Oxbridge interview but using GCSE knowledge.

It really is a very good school - our daughter also attended. Happy to answer any questions about the school.

Noticed they said a preinterview score is determined for each candidate, does that mean somebody answered 16 questions correctly might not be shortlisted for interview while others could? Anybody knows how this score is determined?
