That made it the most popular weekly article since our competition kicked off in December.

Remember, our big winner will be the author who has the most people reading their article in a single weekPublish an article any time before 1 March to be in with a chance of winning. Read on for more information on how this competition works.


Could you write your way to a brand-new MacBook Pro?

Try out TSR's new HIVE tool and you could win one of our top prizes, including Amazon vouchers and even a paid contract as a freelance writer with The Student Room.

And, if your article is the one that gets the most readers in a week, you'll win our top prize of an Apple MacBook Pro.

With three weeks to go in our big HIVE launch competition, our current leader is Stratx, whose article TOP 5 REVISION METHODS TO ACHIEVE 4 A*S. YOU WON'T BELIEVE NUMBER 4 had 1,496 readers during the week 11 February - 17 February.

If you can publish an article that gets more readers in a week, the MacBook could be yours.

What is HIVE?

HIVE is The Student Room's latest feature, a tool you can use to create and publish your own articles on TSR.
You can write about anything you like: from study tips to club reviews; from personal statement advice to short stories. If you're in need of a dash of inspiration, read our article on how to win TSR's HIVE competition.
Every article published by a community member before 1 March 2019 will be automatically included in the competition.

Once you’re in; you’re in! We’ll track the number of readers your article gets during every week throughout the rest of the competition. And, each week, we’ll update this article, so you can see who’s in the lead - and whether it’s you!

The sooner you get involved, the more chances you’ll have to top the leaderboard. But even if you join the competition later on, there’s still every chance to win.

Once you have an article live - or if you already have an article live - make sure everyone hears about it. Post it on your social networks or start a thread about it on TSR. The more readers you gain in a single week, the better your chance of beating that current target of 881 readers.
