Keep getting rejected

Hi, I am now in year 11 and i applied for at least 10 sixth forms. And till now 5 rejected me. Am I really that bad? I was hoping Harris Westminster could get me an offer but they put me on the waiting list. And for LAE Stratford, they said they won't continue my application just because of my predicted grade. The only sixth form I am waiting for is LAET, but cos I failed to go to LAE Stratford I guess the chance is tiny. What should I do now? The worst thing is in my recent mock, my maths grade dropped from 9 to 7. I was literally crying in the bathroom for an hour. My teacher kept saying it was because of exam pressure but I did 2 GCSEs last year so it won't be the case. Any suggestions on what to do next? I feel miserable.

just give up, no sixth forms accept you anyway. You might as well not to do gcse.


I think that’s bad advice to give.

Personally from experience, I got on the waiting list for my college I’m currently attending due to how my GCSES mock grades didn’t meet the entry requirement. Just have faith and be patience (and I know that it’s difficult and you’re anxious) but I got into my college after I got my GCSES grades.

If they put you on the waiting list, it usually means that your 50/50 chance of getting in and not. But they usually wait until after GCSES I think. And then contact you about your place cause that’s what happened with me

They will probably have accepted lots of people that won't end up going there so lots of spaces will probably open up once results are in.
If you are on waiting list, there is a chance - I know people who get in to their sixth form from waiting list.
Also can you stay in your current school for sixth form? If yes, this will be your back up.

Wait until you hear from all of them. Keep working and focus on your grades - there may be spare places on results day.

I heard That there is only 300 place for year 12 but they gave out around 450 offers so I guess the chances are little?

there is sixth form in my current school but it is not really a good school like the teachers are kind of bad. That’s why I am so upset about no school giving me offer

focus on your gcse's, whats the point on worrying about sixth forms if your gcse's are are "bad". i quote as it as I assume you want the est ( all 9s).

many these sixth forms you mention probably get students predicted all 9s. your not bad, its just there is a lot of competition.

do not feel miserable, a good sixth form doesn't mean much. mocks don't mean anything as its about what you know, how you are able to apply it, in the exam. what does mean a lot is the a level grades. anyone can do well in a levels regardless of the sixth form, sure many sixth forms achieve a lot better results for uni nationally, but you can also a do a lot by yourself. what I'm trying to say is that lets say you want to go oxford haveing all 9s, is better than haveing 8s and 7s because a drop in performance ( while attending a top sixth form). so rather than cry over spilled milk, get those gcse results and develop yourself for your career.

Bro these GCSEs won’t even matter when you start A levels. Regarding sixth form you can succeed anywhere if you yourself put the effort in. Most sixth form just have high results due to their strict entry requirements anyways.

I am trying to improve my English as I moved to UK in year 9 so my English is not that great. My current school is 35 minutes away from my house, so there isn’t really a point to stay
