i thought newstead would have one but they haven’t put anything on their website so at this point idk, if there is i’m sure the revision i’m doing for olaves will help
as far as sample papers, let me tell you, i’ve searched everywhere and found NONE for olaves, but i did find some past papers for other schools that do entrance exams. olaves seems to be the only school who does multiple choice but i’ve been practicing using these papers and its all good practice
how are you revising for the exams?

how have you guys been preparing? it’s kind of hard to know what exactly to do since everyone’s at different points but i just revised as much of the course as i could. especially for RS

that’s how i am rn with RS, technically they can’t ask anything that requires specific GCSE knowledge as not everyone who does RS a level would’ve done it at gcse which is something i’m trying to keep in mind - as far as prep goes though i’ve just been using normal revision techniques
what are you doing for AS?

fair enough that’s my plan for RS, there’s not much i can revise there
my predicted grades range from 7 to 9 in everything and i got a 9 in RS chem and physics in my mocks which is good since i’m doing those subjects an a level/AS
what about you, what are your grades like?

I am doing the entrance test on the 26th of Feb as well. I am in Group Yellow B. I chose Further Maths, Physics, Computer Science and Economics.Unfortunately, I didn't pick economics for GCSE so could someone give me some tips or advice for the economics test.And is the Computer science test just algorithms and coding or is there any theory in it as well.
