I don't know if you'll read this before the exam, but most people don't complete it! Not just some.
Just attempt as many questions as you can to the best of your ability.
Sure, some people do complete it and score very highly - but there is a relatively wide spectrum in terms of ability.

Good luck!

Just as a warning, not everyone has sat the entrance exam so you may want to be careful about what you say on here as you could give them an unfair advantage in the admissions process.
Best of luck

Try not to worry about it. When I did it last year I thought I completely failed it as I didn’t finish it and messed up some questions. I thought I would have no chance of getting in. But now I go to KCLMS. It’s really hard to judge how well you will do as you are not only marked on correct answers but also your working/ the way you think. Good luck to you all. Also as Toastiekid said make sure you don’t discuss answers as some people haven’t sat the exam yet.

Hi, do you know when they ask for a teacher’s reference and can it determine whether you are chosen for interview? I’ve read the website which mentions something about the pre interview score being determined by the admissions test and a ‘widening participation score’ but i’m not sure what it means

Do you know how long it takes for the school to reply to the applicants if they have gotten through to the interviews?

The widening participation score is based on things like ethnicity, gender, and what kind of background you come from. Basically its to make sure that the people that get in are not just people who have had lots of amazing opportunities already, been to private school etc. It is so that less advantaged people have an increased chance of getting in. That is not to say that people who have been very fortunate so far cannot get a place but they do try to ensure that people who haven't already been to amazing schools which have really helped them aren't disadvantaged.

They ask for the teacher's reference at some point between the exam and interview (I think they asked mine for one in either late December or early January). I'm not entirely sure which part of the admissions process considers the reference, but my best guess is that it is used post interview as they say that only the exam score and widening participation score affect interviews. Hope that helps x

It is generally a week and a half.

Sorry to hear that you guys didn’t get in, some people i know who applied didn’t get in either. I’m sure you’ll do well regardless and good luck for everyone. I did get an interview and i was genuinely shocked when I opened the email, I had to have someone with me because I was so nervous lmao. I’m just worried because i’m an extremely awkward person and not sure how to cope with an interview but i guess I’ll see how it goes
