I have just done the entry exams for HWSF and I did very good, i probably got full marks in Spanish, and missed out a question or two for maths but roughly guessed the answer. The thing is I moved to London this Summer and when I tried applying to sixth forms they said it was too late so I’m basically wasting a year because it was late and I’m now at college but I can still join sixth form because I’m one of the youngest in my year. So after I did the exams I saw people saying that you need at least a 7 on the subject your doing, and because we didn’t get to do our GCSEs my predicted grades were bad because they were based of those year 6 exams which I didn’t do because I moved to the country in year 8, if I did good on the entry exams which as I’ve said before I feel that I did very very good, but have mainly 4-5, and a 6 in maths because I told my school that that was ridiculous so they changed my target to a 6. Would I still get a place there?

First of all well done on performing so well on your entrance exam, I have a former student from Harris Westminster. From what I remember if you performed really well in the entrance exam then you would have a high chance to be invited to an interview. The score on the interview i think is weighted more compare to the entrance exam. And if you perform well on the interview then you would have a conditional offer, but this is mostly subject to you getting 6 or above on GCSE on top of this 7-9 on the subject chosen for A-level. Though there may consider special circumstances if you performed extremely well in the interview.

The only one which I didn’t get was the coordinates question, that’s the only thing which I’m not familiar with, but the rest was alright
