They won’t take any less then a score of 7.5
the conditional offer like she said is based on ur personal statement

I live very close to the skl and had a score of 7.5 so I was put into a waiting list but eventually I was given an offer bcs some students left last second so I hope you will get in but you will need higher grades so work hard 👍

its not all that bad but i gotta say that it isnt amazing and the teaching is p overrated to me its just a bunch of smart kids in a school with normal teachers, also comes with a fair warning: ik a level content is hard and you would want good teacher but if you already go to a state school, you would be predicted p high, right, beacuse you are so much more smarter than everyone else around you, if you go to a grammar school you would be one of the "average" kids and this can also threaten your grade since they are either as smart as you are or smarter, this really took a toll on my motivation in class, everyone is suddenly doing so much better than you and what was considered the best at your old school may not apply... pls think about this also depends on your subjects u can PM me if you have more questions!

also friends wise, i think the year 11s rn are p nice ngl, i had rocky start to year 12 but that could just be me!

(ps. the canteen food actually tastes realllyyyyyy good!!!! :tongue:)

That’s so trueee it was hard to adjust at first but you get used to it overtime and the expectations are very high

Hi my predicted grades are good but I’m not sure if I can achieve them

Do you know what grades the conditional offer will require me to have

Let’s say my predicted for maths is 8 and to do maths at Langley I need a 7

For me to get it will I need a 7in maths or 8
