"The school admission policy at Saint Olaves has always been an extremely selective 6A's and 3B's. We have fought to reach and attain these grades so we can progress into the school sixth form. However despite being one of the most selective schools in the country, it has now been changed to be even more selective. If even one C is attained at GCSE, all other grades must be the equivalent of an A*. For the full admission policy at year 12(Revised) see the 2017-18 admission policy on the school website."
Another student comment:
"How do they expect us to attain such high grades, especially if some of the teaching staff aren't the best? The grades needed were already very selective, and only the top of the country could enter but now they've made it even higher! Not only this, but we are also testing out the new (appantly harder) GCSE, new marking system and new 3 year course. Why are we always the one at the disadvantage?
This needs to be said. The qualifications needed are too high and I wouldn't be surprised if most of the current students in the year don't have a chance into 6th form."
