    Hi, I'm Sinead and I'm in Year 10.
    I'm planning on applying to very high level sixth forms this year, mainly Christ's Hospital and while my target and predicted grades are somewhat decent ( My lowest ones are 6s and highest ones are 8s and one 9 ), I'm not doing badly in school but I'm not at the top of my class? I'm already gotten rid of my social media and am now concentrating on studying and boosting my grades for my mocks in July. If I do well there, can I stand a chance at Christ's Hospital?

    ( I don't know if this makes much sense but I am sooooooo nervous )

    Hi interesting uniform.
    They look for a min 6 A/A* GCSE Raise the 6's to 7 and then you would meet that requirement.

    They have a computerised entrance test as well so you could ask what that consists of plus other qualities they look for. That way you can start preparing extra curriculars. No need to be nervous, just do your research form a plan , then go for it.

    thank you!
    If you tag me then i know. I had a look and would just say make yourself a to do list and liaise with them, so they know who you are. It looks quite unique. Looks as though you cna put a string application in. Not sure whether you need a scholarship or not but absorb all the info from the website. Pay attention to deadlines.
