hi i did the sixth form admissions and passed. (no scholarship as I'm an international student ), four exam papers that are similar to the igcse, I did terribly, because I didn't do the igcse and learned the entire curriculum three months before the examination. Theres also a logical reasoning test? I did terribly in that as well.

Hi! I’m a current scholarship student at CSFC :smile:)

My advice is :

Look at GCSE stuff on your 3 normal papers

Look at some higher level GCSE stuff/ lower level AS stuff for the scholarship paper

Be yourself in the interview! Try to do a mock interview with someone beforehand if you can + prep some standard answers before hand and try to bring in wider knowledge of your area of interest.

For the logical reasoning test. No real way to prepare, but look up some standard questions for LR tests + be quick with your answers - it’s VERY time constrained. :smile:)


If you have any more questions, feel free to DM me :smile:) hopefully that was helpful.
