Just heard back from OHS, now waiting for Headington. Will be glad when it's all over.

Are these both highly selective ? I have a daughter only year 4 at the minute but a bit of a late developer, so just starting to think about the future and she is just gaining a bit of confidence. Not sure where she will at in 2 years time.

I hear that OHS is highly selective, but there only appeared to be around 70 girls there on admissions day. Headington is not as selective from what I can tell and also seems to focus more on extra-curricular activities.

OHS set their own test (English, Maths, VR, NVR) and Headington have Common Entrance tests in English (x2) Maths and Science. Headington don't place much emphasis on the Science exam for state school pupils.

How did your daughter find the OHS entrance papers? Are all girls interviewed? Thanks.

Her first words were "boring" (she's a girl of few words!) Aside from the VR and NVR, it's typical KS2 stuff from what she said. All girls are interviewed the week after the tests.
