Hello everyone, My name is Kerel, I am a mother of three (two daughters and one son), I am new to mumsnet so nice to meet you all ;)

Currently, I am considering to get one of my DD to Wycombe Abbey for Sixth Form and apparently it is very hard and difficult to get in because firstly she has to have an interview and pass the general english exam, and if she is able to succeed, then she has to complete the Sixth Form Entrance Exams which is highly highly competitive. My DD is quite confident, loud (oops) outgoing and sociable, her academic results are not bad as well, her worst grade is a B.

So i just want to know all the info about the school (Impression, personal experience, others experience, etc. Anything will do smile Because these will really help me make up my mind and clear the worries of my DD. Also, I am quite concerned about the interview and the english exam, is there anything my DD can prepare for and is the interview conversation-like or exam-like?

Thank you very much. Have a nice day.

I dont know about Wycombe specifically but if you look at The Student Room there is quite a lot from overseas students trying for places at Wycombe, Westminster and similar.

I assume your daughter is in Year 10 now. If she is in Year 11 it is too late for her to apply.

She will need to have A grades as a minimum - many students applying will end up with mostly A*s.

What did your DD think of the school when she visited it? Where else is she applying?
