Hi! I know this might be a bit late, but my entrance exams are within a week's time, next Saturday on the 9th of November 2019. I'm just really nervous, ngl, because I have no information on the level of difficulties of these tests, especially being an international student here in UK, just the thought of having to compete against 350 all native speaker of English. Does anyone have any information about the interview? I mean I've heard that they want to look at your perspectives and what you consider is valuable. For example, if you were given a million pounds right now, what would you spend it on. I also heard that they want to see the deepness of your intelligence? Idk, sorry for faffing way too long, but, is anyone in my situation or anyone know any more about the entrance exams? Thank you!

Hi there

I took the 16+ tests and I attend the college now. I am very fortunate to have gotten a full scholarship to the sixth form!

I have some advice for the tests and the interviews as I went through these myself. I would recommend making sure you know the content of gcse maths very well and also to make sure that you are on top of your school work in the interviews that follow. Dm me for more details!


Good luck!

There is a maths and English paper so ensure that you are familiar with the gcse style type of writing for the english essays. Make sure that you are happy with algebra in gcse maths.

Additionally, make sure that you are keeping a good eye on time and are happy to speed through all the tests as the verbal reasoning paper is very time-pressured.

Read every question very carefull and good luck!

hi Apad, I am planning on applying for Brighton college but I have realised that it is past the deadline. Was wondering whether or not the school does a late application scheme, whereby I may have to pay extra fees to compensate, but I still get to sit an exam? Hugo

Just happened to scroll past this thread, usually only see stuff when there's an @.

Good news! There seems to be a separate application window in February time normally. Send them an email and I'm sure they'll direct you to the later application window. Best of luck!

no worries haha. He sounds like the right person to ask, he's actually relatively new to the admissions role so it's hard to say but from what I've heard, he sounds like someone that would be good to email.
