UCL and Kings

Continuing in the tradition of University visits, both University College, London and King’s College, London visited our school to present their Universities. We have several graduates attending these Universities and I know these two establishments want to continue having contact with our school. It was interesting to hear what these Universities look for. Good IB scores are essential; however, most students applying to these two prestigious Universities have that. They are looking very seriously at the Personal statements submitted by the students in UCAS. The students need to answer the questions; Why does the student want to study that subject? What connection do they have to the subject matter? What makes them special? etc…

This was very early for our Grade 11’s, who have just settled into the routines of DP1; however, we hope it started a process of thinking about their future lives.
