Ok so I want to apply for Brampton sixth form but my minimum expected grades are all level 6s, if I can work harder and get a good reference and achieve the grades on GCSE results day will I be able to get an offer. I’m not sure if you needed 7s and above for your real exam or for your predicted grades. I’m working way above my predictions but Brampton won’t know that sooooo do you think I will be able to get through to the interviews???? Please help me... 😂

As they are a top school and are likely to be oversubscribed I really don't think they will accept you. However, looking at their admissions policy
they do offer late places if their current candidates do not meet their conditional offers. You may be able to apply on results day when they see how many of their applicants actually got the grades they said. Here is the extract from the admissions document

I know a few dudes who got kicked out in at the end of year 12 because of flopping literally one subject. Listen one guy got AABD and they were like nope, you gotta go bye. I feel like that’s too much and pretty sure you won’t have much of a good experience there unless ur full on smart getting A* all the time and can handle the workload well. If u really wanna go there, maybe ask your teachers to change the predicted grades and appeal for at least one grade above - but this is only possible if you’re actually showing them you’ve taken the initiative to improve a lot. If those grades get changed, and you do well on the interview there’s a good chance you’ll get in. Good luck.

I also know someone who goes there...
I mean used to go there. He left because of the workload and how strict the teachers were. But I suppose they gotta push students if they want to keep their results high

it's quite a bit but it's manageable. however I'm a very slow worker (my brains just slow) and I procrastinate often so it's quite a lot for me personally.

school finishes at 2:35 and I study until 7pm, however it will be interrupted with the time taken to travel home and eat something etc. I go to bed around 7/8pm and wake up at 1/2 am to eat and study until around 5:30/6:00. so that's around 5 or 6 hours a day.

it's either that or I study till midnight then I go to bed.

best way to describe it: happy/healthy/relaxed atmosphere

rules are quite strict I guess but I'm not that bothered about it, for example, you can't go toilet during lessons (it'd be locked anyway).

no, you can't leave the school site. it's like secondary school, you have to be in all day.
