You ‘guys’ are so helpful – it’s really appreciated. Elles: yes, she’s predicted AAB. Ndgaarondi: see the other thread. She did AS levels in English (A), Media Studies (A), Art (B) and Computing (C). I asked for advice in a separate thread about whether she should drop Art or Computing. The consensus was she should drop Art as Computing gave her a more balanced profile – but some posters thought perhaps she should stick with Art because her chances of achieving the required grade are better. However, unbeknown to me – I’m only her father – she has dropped Computing anyway… Your perspective on the relationship between grades and likelihood of interview is also very interesting: we’re hoping that her general ‘well roundedness’ will appeal. Earthmother: that’s a very kind offer that I may well take you up on. I need to have a heart to heart with the young lady in question in the very near future, and specific questions may well arise. Alvira: I think she’s banking on that – she almost certainly interviews well (it was, apparently, the interview that got her to be chosen as Head Girl…) Old Thrashbarg: thanks. I guess I’m just remembering how I didn’t get an interview – but then, way back when, things were very different (and I think I failed the English entrance exam for Cambridge anyway…) Many thanks again, all.
