    I'm doing my GCSE's at a comprehensive school right now and i'm an average student but for sixth form my parents encouraged me to apply for a grammar school since my current school isn't exactly that great. So i applied, and somehow i got in...and considering they accepted someone like me it would be stupid for me to turn down a grammar school. Thing is though, my current school has a ton of things that i know will get me a ton of UCAS points but i know that the quality of teaching is not so good. I honestly don't know what to do, Opinions??

    but also i would recommend going to grammar if you dont consider yourself an independent learner. i stayed at my school because it has an amazing raising aspirations thing that helps loads with experience and personal statements..etc but i sacrificed amazing teachers for okay/bad teachers and i dont regret it except its harder/independent work.

    For top universities they won’t make you an offer based upon UCAS points. It will be grades. UCAS points matter for courses where entry requirements are low.
