    I'm having guidance meetings for both institutions, but I'm not really sure which place is the best. I'm interested in more academic subjects, but my grades aren't exactly 9's...

    I'm predicted 6's and mainly 7's, one 8 in history (i know that's not academic though). I'm predicted 6's in bio and chem but somehow a 7 in physics (dunno how i got that in the mocks!)

    I really want to study Chemistry, Biology and Pschology (or sociology)... Ahh anyone else in this situation?

    As a sixth form student in the area, I do have to say that hills and long road aren't the only viable options. This used to be the case but over the years new sixth forms have appeared around the area that are arguably nearly just as good as hills.

    I mean, if you can get into hills road, then go. It isn't very hard to get into it, you just need to get the grade that are required for you to study that course; however, it isn't the amazing institution that you may think it is.

    I go to long road and I love psychology! The college has so many great teachers. I don’t really like sociology because it has a lot of politics and business involved which I can’t get my head round.

    Obviously I can’t speak for hills road but I can say that I recommend long road

    Awesome, I picked that as one of my options, as well as Chem and Bio!

    Mhmm. I did apply for Netherhall as well as Hills, but my problem is that I'm usually a slow learner, and I sometimes do independent learning at home so i know what I'm doing... I feel like Long could support me a little more but idk about Hills..

    I'm going to long road in September to do photography, drama and theatre and graphic design, so I'm not exactly in your situation, but, I have heard that Hills Road is better for the academic subjects and not so good on the arts, but in my opinion it doesn't matter where you go as long as you are responsible for your own performance. So choose the place that you liked more regardless of their reputation.

    Trueem, my parents want me to go there for the reputation but in Long i can study biology, chem and psychology which i couldn't do in hills (just because of one subject i was slightly under in!)
