Wow some people get the option of declining Ebs. My parents are kinda wanting that I get a late offer or something.
I think it's best if you move on... clinging onto a nearly broken branch isn't really gonna help

Guys should I go again next year?
yes i am thinking of that too as i didnt get in this year but i am hoping if they would offer me a place as some people decline the interview offers so hopefully and if that doesnt happen then guess i have to do it again

Sorry to hear you did not get an interview  :(
I did not either, but we always have next year and a chance for a late offer. In my opinion, I suggest you let Ebs go for now, since it looks like chances are low for a late offer.

idk but i know that 38 people will guarantee not get accepted due to 5% rule *cough *cough, the 40 or so UHS students who sat the exam. The rest are pretty much guarantee accepted as long as we prepare for the interview and don't act anti-social during the group activities. Also prepare an EI question, it can be changed at any time. I know for a fact at least a few people will decline (like the people who got into jmss for example) Gl everyone.

Where does it say there is a 5% rule? I thought 5% rule was only for MGHS/MHS/SCHS/NHS?

Ye I am curious about that too... I just heard it from Jayce that the school has a 5% rule. I mean, does it even matter, seeing that they only accept max 100 students per year?

Yeah it is for the year 8 entry only. Ebs does not have that rule, they never said anything about it.

Has anyone decided their E.I. question yet? Apparently they address it during the interview.

I know I want something genetics-related, but idk what exactly.

EBS has a maximum intake of around 20 uhs kids

It was more straightforward than I anticipated. In fact, mine took less than 20 minutes.

We did a group activity (which was more of an icebreaker, actually, since they didn't seem to pay too much attention to it) and then had a one on one session with one of the teachers. The experience comparable course counselling - we just discussed my subjects and E.I. rather than any out of the box concepts.

Ye my interview also mirrors that... but idk I brought my achievements with me so the principal talked about my achievements too. I hope I get in, for some reason I'm having doubts
