Hi Tipsy, I have actually applied to four school, not two( typo error)
Merchiston, Edinburgh Academy, George Heriots and George Watson's.
My first choice is Heriots. The Head asked me to return to the school with my child so that he could meet him. He seemed very impressed with my son and was giving out positive vibes.
He sits the exams on 14th,16th,17th and 31st Jan.
Incidentally I decided not to apply to Fettes because the school made it clear that my son has to be of scholarship level in order to obtain any bursary, and coming from a State school I feel he would not have covered the work necessary. I will definitely keep you posted with regards to the outcome. Kosar
