Hey.
I'm in Year 12 right now...
If anyone has any Qs about LAE, feel free to ask me!
My predicted grades were mostly 7-9s and I got in. The best advice I can give any applicants is this: TAKE MOCKS SERIOUSLY!!
When I was in Y11, everyone was saying 'mocks don't matter, as long as you do well in the real thing'. Mocks, to an extent, matter even more than your GCSEs. They form the basis for your predicted grades, which is what LAE looks at when giving out interviews and condit offers. Regardless of how smart you are, start revising now. I was getting 4s in all three science so I spent a week watching freesciencelessons. Then my 3s turned into 9s. As long as you meet the entry requirements, you have a decent chance of getting in. https://www.lae.ac.uk/399/entry-requirements

How are the extra curricular opportunities at LAE? Also my school has moved mocks to a much later date so my predicted grades would be based on in class assessments

There are loads of extra curriculars, and there's something for everyone. There's a wide range of 'games' from Duke of Edinburgh to football. I'm in the CCF, which is one of the many cool things offered by LAE. Eventually, I'll even get to fly a plane with a trained pilot!
There are lots of societies for you to get involved in, like BAME, LGBT, Ecology.
Clubs include stuff like Astrophysics, chess, debating, self defence...
There's a great sense of community that I didn't see at other sixth forms.


About your grades, LAE says 'We sort out the details of your grades directly with your school and will be accepting revised grades up until the 5th of February.' So u should be able to get someone from your school to get your application updated.

Your grades look high and it says on the website that they look at your top 8 predicted grades and compare it
It is mostly the interview you need to focus on to get the place (said by many forums) as you could have a high grade but if you do badly with your interview you won't get an offer.
One thing I read was to be confident in the interview and know what you are talking about and have hobbies that to talk about.
If there is no hobbies you can talk about how you like reading a book or something.
But with the current covid restrictions I am not sure if interviews would go on. Maybe online.

I looked on the entry requirements and that is what is stated, and from looking from hours and hours of lae forums people ha,ve high grades like all 9s but they dont get the place; the current year 12s at lae say to focus on your interview to secure your place. It also says on the website says the applicants will be judged on their average score of their 8 best gcse predicted grades.

Ohhhh so the interview is most important? So you can still get in with bad grades (comparatively, of course) ?

Probably as long as our top 8 grades have a good average. Maybe a grade 7

Hey everyone! I really want to go to LAE but I’ve heard how stressful it can be. This has made me question my application. I’m a person who stresses really easily, I’m really an introvert when it comes to the classroom environment with people I’m unfamiliar with, especially if it’s such a competitive environment like LAE Stratford is known to be. I’ve always had a problem with teachers picking on students in lessons, I’m sure I’ll get over that if I go. Any advice from LAE students or anyone in particular?

Hey, I'm applying there as well, you're not the only one questioning your application, I'm still worried my predicted grades won't be good enough
What subjects are you planning on taking?
