IIRC her son had been offered a place and she wanted advice on where was the best place to take his Common Entrance.

He won't actually go until 2013.

I have also been wondering about this. If she was genuine, then good luck to the lad. If not........well I don't know what to think ;)

I've just wandered into this section looking for the latest from Krisland too... say what you will, Secondary Education was far more lively with her around!

He got into St Olaves which is a super selective grammar.

I have no idea if she is still thinking of getting him to take the Common Entrance. Personally, I think she was for real.

I read the thread and thought it was real.

Why wouldn't it be? Typical MN response - you can't be happy or have success ! LOL

She was definitely for real but she was not prepared to listen to any advice given by people who had alot of experience in the system. OliPolly - noone was begrudging her son (or her) success or happiness, but if she has taken the st Olaves place and sits him for common entrance in year 8 she will have taken someone elses place away from them.

Hi suppermummy - the best thing is to call the Tutor for Admissions, the people there are very helpful.

I think that you can take the scholarship if you don't have a place but you have to do very well at Common Entrance, up to Eton's required standard.

Good luck to your DS!

Hi supper mummy,

My son sits for Eton in November and if he doesn't get in then we are definitely trying for a music scholarship. Bear in mind however that the scholarships are super competitive and tend to be filled by boys who are choristers or Oriental boys with grade 8+ on both piano and violin.

Would be interested to know what school he goes to. Another thing is if he didn't even get a B place then it's unlikely he will get in.
