Anyone heard from NLCS yet? I know we need to give them until 20th but just a little anxious

You will hear on that date and not before. Wine for you and chocolate for your DD until then. The process is awful but it's a bit like childbirth. You forget the worst bits pretty quickly when it's over.

MumT2 Fri 17-Jan-14 02:26:03

I guess. DD still has others to sit anyway (Group 1 consortium). Will stay focused on that for now.

MumT2 Fri 17-Jan-14 12:36:06

Results are out!!

Results came out today!

Itsostressy- Did your DD get called for 2nd interview NLCS?

AlisonP15 Sat 18-Jan-14 12:11:10

Does anyone know what my son will have to do at RGS in an interview based on maths? Also, if there are 70 boys being interviewed, how many places are available for them at this stage?

Got our NLCS letter yesterday. DD has an interview so we're really pleased. What are our chances of an offer? I know some schools make considerably more offers than places......

itssostressy Sat 18-Jan-14 15:01:22

Hi MumT2 - yes our DD did get an interview for NLCS! We are very excited! Its next week...

Does anyone know how many girls get called for interview and how many places there are on offer?

horsemadmom Sat 18-Jan-14 15:03:14

I think they interview about 200 for 60 places. Good luck!

CandyCrushMum Sat 18-Jan-14 15:12:40

So I'm hoping they make twice as many offers as places.... Does anyone know the interview format? NLCS is definitely our first choice.

horsemadmom Sat 18-Jan-14 16:18:30

They only offer a few more places over the 60. Not many offers are declined. The interview is a gentle chat with a senior member of staff. Some mental maths. Nothing you can prep for and nothing stressful.

MumT2 Sat 18-Jan-14 16:22:23

Congrats to all. DD also got an interview. Really pleased

So got a letter for habs boys for interview but on last day they interview does this mean he more a borderline candidate. Does anyone know how they choose interview slots.

Has anyone heard when MT letters come out.

Any ideas about Habs interview and how many places vs people they interview

angelcake20 Thu 23-Jan-14 14:25:13

Habs boys interviews in alphabetical order of school so nothing to worry about there. The boys get a group interview in 3s or 4s then a fairly standard individual one. Ds was asked to read a passage and discuss it, interpret a graph and asked about which sports he did.

lastbaby Thu 30-Jan-14 22:56:43

Thanks good to know the order. My sons school starts with a W so that explains why he was last day.

Son had the interview yesterday and boys were asked if they applied to QE and what their scores were which I thought was strange question in the group session.

Got St Albans and MT interview tomorrow so fingers crossed

MumT2 Fri 31-Jan-14 14:37:33

Anyone had habs girls interview yet? How did your dd find it?

MumT2 Fri 14-Feb-14 09:50:32

Goodluck to all DD's awaiting results today!

Rabbitcar Fri 14-Feb-14 10:13:52

DD2 got an offer from NLCS today, plus from City of London and Channing, but we are holding out for Henrietta Barnett. Good luck everyone.

MumT2 Fri 14-Feb-14 19:12:05
