Thank you so much for taking the time to do this for Newington College. We try
not to double up too much information (although some things are best said many
times!) so you may not read, in the magazine, all that you say here. We do look
for advice that is different, quite personal, that others may not have included or
a different slant to dealing with pressure, or a great one off success story. Many
people say they want to know this information because these last two years
seem a great mystery, particularly to younger students. They will take your
advice and be very interested.
