Hi! Before you start reading, my word choices/spelling and grammar skills may drive you crazy, i suddenly started writing this at 3AM in the morning, typing on the computer half-asIeep thx!
)I'm an international student preparing for the westminster school entrance exams coming up in November! I just wanted to see where I am and where other applicants are at(if it is comfortable for you to share) and im also looking for advices based on the entrance exam and interviews. I want to know if the exams only cover igcse knowledge?(kinda confused cause some people say its only up until igcse syllabus and some say its nearly a-level knowledge?)
To start with... my grades on my report card aren't so good(many people say that entrance exams are more important, so i am not too worried about this). The igcse subjects I take are: math, add maths, seperate science/three sciences, eng lang&lit, spanish, econ, PE. My choices for a-levels are: biology, chemistry, maths and probably econ or physics yes, i do suck at both physics and econ but its the only choice) I do many extra-curriculars, (i don't know which one i should mention in my interview could you please help me choose) starting from sports, I do swimming(my strongest sports; been to many comps and won numerous medals), fencing, golf, tennis, gymnastics, and figure skating. Instrumental-wise I play the flute, currently enrolled in the school orchestra and local youth orchestra(played solos in charity concerts, played for 7 years). Ok, here comes the academic chapter.. firstly the cca's im enrolled in: biology club, chemistry club, first aid club, physics club, school orchestra, debate club, MUN(yeah been to many conferences), cross stitch( if youre asking me how i participate in so many clubs, some of these cca's take place at lunch not only after school
Current biology subject ambassador, transition ambassador, and house captain in school. I recently took the UKMT and got a gold certificate and i think thats it...
( not much..I kinda regret not participating in any academic competitions, but its too late
