As someone who went to fort St and knows several people who came in in yrs 8-10 I can confirm that it is a competitive process. You will have to hand write an essay on a topic of the school's choosing in addition to providing your reports. I believe an interview is also involved. Remeber that fort St is not a hot house like ruse and they don't care as much about your marks so much as your creative potential and value as a person. Also Fort St has a bit of a problem with its gender balance - the school is two-thirds male - so they tend to prioritise giving girls places. In my year of the roughly 15 people who joined from yrs 8-10 all but one were female. The year 11 entry is based off a test and is less competitive and a more diverse range of people tend to get in.Original Poster said:Can someone give me their opinions on what year 8 semester 2 and year 9 semester one report they think will be sufficient enough for me to get into fort street taking in account of other competitors?
