23 January 2013Competition for entry to the best universities is fierce. It is often no longer enough for applicants to rely on their examination results when so many young people are lining up rows of A* and A grades at GCSE and A Level. Increasingly, top universities are looking beyond examination results as they endeavour to judge a young person’s potential. Wider experiences, knowledge and interests become more important as admissions tutors try to differentiate between numerous talented candidates all with similar examination potential.
8 January 2013Happy New Year. I have always worked in comprehensive schools. This has been a deliberate career decision for me as I believe passionately in what comprehensives aspire to do and succeed in achieving across the country term after term.
