    Right. I suppose they’ll be interesting. I kinda wish it wasn’t after GCSEs, though. Are you doing NCS?
    I heard about NCS when a friend mentioned it briefly. Is it good? How do you sign up? It sounds really cool.
    Can you explain what it actually is?

    NCS stands for National Citizens Service. It’s basically like a summer camp; first week is like PGL/Kingswood, second week is more of a uni-style experience and the final two weeks are when you do some sort of social action project. You can sign up through their website...

    That doesn't mean anything lol - if you scored enough then you should do it. That's a stupid rule.

    I'm fine, I suppose. I didn't go to school today - I literally had NO energy following the trip last night to the Woman IN Black play.

    Yeah - I was expecting to be scared, though. It was literally just a few jumps here and there, but nothing seriously traumatising...

    Hello, it's me again, I was just wondering what students do with the 25 min of break time they are given in the morning.
    I found this by looking at http://www.harriswestminstersixthfor...pe-of-the-week if anyone else is interested in the timetables for HWSF and I would also love to know if they're doing saturday lessons because I heard a rumour about them removing saturday lessons.
    Thank you in advance!

    Hey, I can confirm that there will be no Saturday school for our year. This info was taken from current students at the interview.

    I guess that people would revise, eat and socialise during the break, as you would normally do...

    I got a conditional offer and I need to get grade 7 in the subjects I want to take. However, I don't do any of those as GCSE except biology, so do I need to get grade 7 in subjects that are similar.
