So I’m in year 10 (going into year 11), meaning I’ll be taking the Saint Olaves exam for entry into their sixth form in February. There’s not much information online about how I can prepare as I want to start this summer. Is there anyone who has recently taken this exam that can give any tips?

The subjects I’m interested in are
Chemistry
Biology
French
Maths

It was actually alright. A few questions stumped me here and there though. Didn’t end up taking french in the end as I changed to economics. Fingers crossed I get in 🤞🤞🤞🤞

But at the end of the day, there's no point in going to a school that you don't feel welcomed at, and constantly puts you under pressure. But I do think both school are really amazing
