Places to study at Harris Westminster are offered on the basis of performance in subject-specific examinations. Prospective students take examinations in the January of the year they wish to begin their sixth form studies. Students take two examinations, chosen at the time of application, from their four subject choices (apart from Core Maths/EPQ Further Maths and Art where there are no entrance exams available).
There are a number of special conditions:
|There is no EPQ or Further Maths or Core Maths examinations.|
It is not expected that additional content will need to be learned for the examinations beyond that which will have been covered in Year 10 and 11 - the questions are designed to test understanding and reasoning rather than factual knowledge.
Examples showing the kind of question style that candidates should expect are available below:
|Drama & Theatre Studies|
Students choosing two sciences (out of Biology, Chemistry and Physics) must select at least one science for examination.
