I go to Doms so ask whatever you like about that. If you got a scholarship for rms, I would chose that tbh. But it's up to you. How far away is rms from where you live?

st doms is super far away from me - i have to take the train then walk for 45 mins and idk if its worth it u know. but yh i got a scholarship to rms and its like half an hour drive from me but idk i went there and i felt like i didnt fit in. a bunch of people said st doms isnt worth it tho so im so lost coz i really wanted to go there tbh - but is it true that u get ur own personal tutors at st doms?

everyone gets tutors, but they’re like form tutors, and you have to meet with them for an one-to-one at least once every half term, I think. But you can go and talk to them whenever tbh.
If you can be bothered to go on such a long journey every day and you preferred doms, then go for it. I think all the open days are over, but maybe just try visiting both schools again to try and figure out which you prefer. I think there’s a bake sale at doms on the 18th April. I’ll have to double check but it’s open to the general public so you could try to go to things like that to get a better feel for the school. See if anything similar is going on at RMS that you could attend.

Guys does anyone know if doms offers a bursary and how to obtain one, because it might be beneficial for me. Also, ummm how hard will it be to make new friends at doms, as most of my friends are going claremont harris or staying in my sixth form. And uhh, did anyone attend the seminar at 5pm today?

what? further maths!!? 😱 I'm thinking of maths, chemistry and biology since I want to go into the medical field - but im not sure if i should stick to 3 or do 4 - as a 4th i might do english probs but still debating about it...
what field do u want to go into in the future ?

Hahaahhaha. Im considering going into econ seems interesting or maybe politics if it isn't too troublesome. Politics I've heard is dangerous game, but ykw else is... medicine. Medicine is not for the weak, so stay calm. (my sister went into medicine). Good luck in what you wish to do in the future tho. I'm sure you'll be something great one day.

yh true - i wanted to go into politics but then I thought its kinda hard to please everyone and there will always be a bunch of people against u and many politicians get murdered so i thought id go into medicine - although i really hate diseases and blood and stuff but i really do want to help heal people but hopefully i'll get stronger with experience...
tysm - good luck 2 u as well and if u do fm for a levels then even more good luck coz im struggling with it at gcses and regretting picking it ...
