Hi

I just joined the forum and I am jumping straight in asking for tips. My DS did the exams last Friday and has an interview tomorrow am with Dulwich college; any idea what sort of questions he should prepare for? We were given very short notice just got a call yesterday morning. Any suggestions will be appreciated!!

Well done to your DS! Here are some things my DS was asked at 11+ interviews - not Dulwich college but similar:

-what book are you reading, what do you like about it. Tell me about some other authors you like
-which subjects are your best at school and why (and are there any you don't like)
-tell me about some of your hobbies outside school
-what sports do you like, do you pursue them outside school?
-why would you like to come to this school?
-if you were given a million pounds, how would you spend it?
-where would you most like to go in the world and why? (or which place that you've visited has been your favourite and why)
-if you were at home with no electricity (ie no computer games + TV!) how would you amuse yourself?
-which other schools have you applied to, where would you most like to go?

Tricky that last one!!

Good luck to him in his interview

Thanks thisismadness, very helpful questions.

Hello

Did anyone apply to Dulwich College and have you heard anything?. I know offers are supposed to be posted next week but I know some schools don't always keep to their own timetable!
