King's College Wimbledon 10+

Wondering if anyone would be kind enough to share any insights into what comes up in a 10+ interview for King's? We have just been invited and have no idea how to prepare!  :shock: :shock: :shock:

My son had an interview a couple of years ago. Mostly asked questions about himself what he liked doing out of school etc.  Had a couple of maths questions, but simpler ones, I guess more to see if he could think on his feet than if he was a maths whizz.

Also asked if KCS was his school choice or his parents which I think was quite a good question.

Good luck!

Thank you so much, so helpful! Does your son like it there? Just worries it’s too academic/hot house?

A lot of schools ask the kids if it’s their own first choice, which I think is a very unfair question - as if most kids have any idea of what to look for in a school other than whether they have friends going there (most of whom will be abandoned five minutes after they start 😂)

Two years ago, his son was also invited for an interview at King`s College, now he is studying there, and he really likes it, especially what kind of teachers there are and loyalty to each student. Now he is already writing term papers, the load is quite large in his studies, but he doesn’t have time to do it - he orders it at and as a result, does not crash yet. 😂😂
Studying time takes a lot, especially these courseworks, but writing various works in this college is very interesting!
