    Yeah, I got an email a couple days ago and I am not too sure on what it entails.
    I think we have the opportunity to ask SLT about the college and its courses.

    The email says that not all applicants get an invite to the seminar but it doesn't affect the final decisions at the end of March. The college takes in 500 students per year and I think only about a 100/200 get an email.

    Thanks for the reply. Do you know when the deadline for the schools to return the reference form back to the college was? Im unsure if my school sent my old or new predicted grades as i received the new ones on the 8th of march and they are much better than the old ones

    The original deadline was 28th Feb but my friend missed that one and she got an email that said the deadline was extended until the 7th of Mrach.

    I see. I just doubled checked and i received my new mock results along with new predicted grades on the 7th of march. I really hope my school sent the new ones as my old ones were terrible
    Good luck with your application!

    Hey, it wasn't really that important.

    They spoke to us about the benefits of coming to a college and a little but about the trips, extra-cirricular and courses they offer - pretty much everything on their website.

    They also said that this the order of preference for spaces:
    1) Partner School Students
    2) Catholics
    3) Christians
    4) Other faiths.

    Generally, about 50% who get places are Catholic students and students from partner schools while the other half are students with other faiths.
    Also mentioned that we will find out if we get an conditional offer by the end of this month.

    Oh i see. If we don’t get a conditional offer at the end of the month does it mean theres no chance anymore of getting a place?

    Not sure about that. I think you can call up on results day?

    Maybe check their website or send in an email to make sure though.

    They said that from this year, you can drop to 3 a levels if you’d prefer. You don’t have to do 4 for both years but I think it’s best if you choose 4 at first so you can experience which ones you like the most. But yeah, 4 or 3 is fine by them
