Grammar sixth formWatch
Hello! Sorry for the late reply but I'm now in year 11. Do you go to college or sixth form or are you in still in secondary school? I've checked certain grammar sixth forms and most say you need to get at least 6 or 7 grade 7s in your subjects. Do you think going to a grammar sixth form is worth it or going to a normal sixth form or even college is better?
As the previous poster has said, the entrance requirements are down to the 6th from - my grammar 6th form only requires an average of 5.5 in your best 8 GCSEs. Different schools suit different people. Grammar 6th forms may offer a better range of academic subjects (e.g. Further Maths, more likely to offer A levels in languages) but will probably have fewer (if any) more vocational options (e.g. BTEC, Cambridge Nationals). There may well be other differences in terms of expectations. the best thing to do is to try to get the best feel you can for several different options and pick what will suit you best
the expectations might be greater than a comp school but hopefully you will be pushed more to do better things and get better grades.
but i won't lie at my school, if you achieve say a grade 6 in a test you've just done majority of people would be quite unhappy
