    I really wanted to go to st Dom’s because accadecially it is great and I got the grades to get in , but I didn’t get the offer and now I’m on the waiting list . Should I call them to ask about my place . Or just go to my schools sixth form which I really don’t want to go to. I’m really desparate to get into that sixth form it would actually make me a lot happier while in school as now i feel uncomfortable with all the people in my school .

    Hey 👋🏾 advice from a year 13 St Doms studentave they confirmed you’re on the waiting list? If they have then all you can do is really wait and then on results day phone them up because there will be people who got offers who didn’t meet their offer or have just decided they don’t want to go there anymore. I remember there were new people joining classes in the first few weeks of the term and quite a few leaving too. Point is don’t worry, but you can always call them if you need the reassurance I mean, St. Dom’s is great considering that there’s a good support network and opportunities available, however don’t put St. Dominic’s on a pedestal because you will still encounter problems you’d find in any other sixth form/college and not all of the teachers are that great, point is it’s what you make it, as along as you’re determined and a hard worker you’ll succeed no matter where you go because it’s down to the individual Im sure you’ll be happy in St Doms though, the majority of people are really nice and you’ll build some good friendships. It’s also very multi cultural, lots of people from different backgrounds and faiths

    I think they would prefer you to do 4, just to have more options in case you don’t perform well in one of them at the end of the first year but because St Dom’s no longer enter students for AS exams so I think most people do 3 as if you do 4 you won’t have an AS qualification to show for the subject you’ve dropped. I think now, the majority who do 4 are the ones who definitely want to continue doing 4 subjects into the second year, so the full A-Level.

    I’m pretty sure they don’t force you to do 4, they’re very lenient.
