Here are my predicted Grades in best 8 subjects:
Maths = 7
English Language = 7
Biology = 8
Chemistry = 8
Geography = 8
Physics = 7
English Literature = 7
Computer Science = 7

They said the minimum entry requirement to get a chance in their sixth form is a total point score of 54 or higher in best 8 GCSE subjects and a 5 in Maths and English Language. Do you think I stand a chance with these predicted grades or no chance at all in getting a conditional offer?

How do they calculate the GCSE point score in best 8 subjects? Do they double maths and English or do they keep it single?

I'm a current student at Tiffin boys as well. We are expected to get mostly 9s and some 8s. Although for already-tiffin students the requirement for sixth form are only 5s or 6s I believe, it's a lot harder for other students to join because the competition is high for our sixth form

You need a total grade score of 54 to get in so what does the 5 in maths and English Language apply to?

How do they calculate your total grade score anyway? Do they double maths and English or keep it single?

You need a total grade score of 54 so how is that only 5s and 6s. I don't understand ????. Grade score of 54 is like 77777766 minimum not 5555555 etc.

https://fs22.formsite.com/HillsRoadS...jwj/index.html. Go on this website and type in all your predicted grades. I got 73? I thought it was just 59 as its (7 x 5) + (8 x 3) = 35 + 24 = 59.

So can you give me an example of a total grade score of 54 please as 8 best GCSE grades if that's ok?

Your sixth form said you need a 5 in Maths and English Language. Does that count though or not because there is no way a 5 can get you a total grade score of 54 (minimum entry requirements). It has to be either 7s or 8s.

Is this the right school? http://www.tiffinschool.co.uk/sixthform/admissions.html

Read the admissions policy ... if there are too many applications from external canidates then you need to see how they decide who to take

Dinda Academy That's a lot of messages haha.

Our entry requirement for Tiffin Sixth Form (as current tiffinian) is:
- At least a grade 5 in English Language and Mathematics
-Currently a score of 54 in their best 8 GCSES (average score of 6.75) but this is reviewed on an annual basis and may increase

The Maths and English are just additional requirements, I suppose, and if you're suitable for tiffin and you don't meet those requirements, you really should look elsewhere. The entry examinations to get into the school is harder than Foundation Maths papers.

I would assume Maths and English languages would count in your best 8 GCSEs. So if you got a 9 in maths, for example, you'd meet the Maths requirement and have that grade counted towards your best 8 GCSEs (to added up)

Does that make sense?

It has to be either 7s or 8s.
Let's say someone takes 10 GCSEs, since if you're that bad at maths to get a 5 you would have been in bottom set and hence not doing further mathematics. Here's an example of grades:
Maths: 5
English Language: 5
English Literature: 9
Physics: 9
Chemistry: 9
Biology: 9
Geography: 9
History: 9
Art: 9
French: 9
8 best GCSEs = 9+9+9+9+9+9+9+9 = 72

I don't know what that school is doing but literally think Tiffin's requirements as two separate requirements. Don't overcomplicate it; clearly other people have understood it, I think you're overcomplicating it for yourself.

Also, there are a lot of applicants all the time so getting minimum requirements probably won't cut it.
