Wherever a BSB student decides to apply, detailed and bespoke advice and resources are available to ensure that decisions are sound and that the chances of gaining a place at a first choice university are maximised. Students are encouraged to begin thinking about university in Year 11, when the A-Level options information evening and Universities Fair both offer a wealth of information about appropriate subject choices and combinations for a wide range of possible courses and careers.
Preparation and research begins in earnest during Year 12 when students put together a long-list of university choices and begin to outline their personal statement. Research continues with guidance from Form Tutors, subject teachers and the Head of Sixth Form throughout Year 12. There are also a series of symposiums including relevant talks and lectures, as well as an information session for parents and visits from admissions tutors at a range of institutions from both the UK and abroad. Alongside our knowledgeable and experienced teachers, our students also benefit from external expertise via membership of the Independent Schools Careers Organisation (ISCO) as they consider their A-Level and higher education choices.
Much of the summer term of Year 12 is focused on preparation for AS and internal examinations, on which A-Level grade predictions are based. At the start of Year 13, all students applying to the UK will have set up their UCAS accounts, made an initial selection of five universities and have completed a draft of their personal statement on which they will continue to work with guidance from a range of teachers. Those applying to other institutions will work with the Head of Sixth Form and nominated referees to ensure that they have all the necessary support and guidance.UCAS Search Tool.
