PD from Selective school Exams 2020

Hi -
I created this topic so that we can keep each other updated on the status of PD.
I got a PD from MacRobs, no second offers because my school has already reached the 5% allowed - so PD is my only option to get in.

Aug 16th was the cut off date to submit applications for PD - has anyone got their interview letters yet? Any ideas, when to expect this?

Cheers

I got my late offer on monday from suzanne cory, and i didn't even get a PD. I don't know why but I was the only one in my school that got a late offer  :-\
Since you have a PD, chances are very high for you. Just wait a little longer, cause you sure will get a second offer.

hey, congratulations!!! happy for you.
Unfortunately, I hear that second and third round offers are subject to the 5% rule(I wish I am wrong about this ).
5% (2 of 30) from my school has already accepted their offer - so I dont think there will be further offers coming for my school :-(

All the best for the interview. Message me if you feel some info on school culture (general) might help your preparation.



5% (2 of 30) from my school has already accepted their offer - so I dont think there will be further offers coming for my school :-(

5% rule is based on the size of your school's Yr8 cohort, not how many of them sat the exam.

From personal experience (I did pd for mhs and got in), I reckon the best way to secure your chances of getting into the school is by:

1. How you brand yourself. Make sure you get across that you have a wide variety of interests and that you're academically talented. Also make sure you bring up any awards you've won. Do this in the private interview.

2. Stand out. In the group interview/conversation, make sure you speak up and show that you have a unique way of thinking. They usually get you to look at something as a group and have a discussion afterwards, try to mention something that isn't clearly obvious or that shows how observant you are.

3. Think about the generic questions you'd expect them to ask you (why do you want to go to this school, what is your weakness) because they probably will ask you those questions in the private interview.
