Students apply to five universities and, in the run up to this application, each will be given a considerable level of guidance from his or her teachers, Head of Year 13 and Head Teacher, covering their selection of courses and universities through the UCAS application system, helping them to compose the Personal Statement and more.
If a student is called for interview by a university, he or she does not attend before sitting a mock interview at Earlscliffe.
Further examinations on application:
Non-native speakers of English must sit the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test as part of their university entry portfolio of exams, and we offer at least two lessons a week of IELTS tuition on the timetable.
In addition, some universities require students to sit further examinations when they apply for particular degrees. These might include: the National Admissions Test for Law (LNAT) for some law courses; the Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA) for various University of Oxford and Cambridge courses; and the Bio-Medical Admissions Test (BMAT) and UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) for certain medical and dental courses.
Earlscliffe can provide practice testing and source extra tuition as required.
