So current lower sixth who have just done their AS levels, will you be preparing in anyway for your uni interviews or courses over the summer?
I have decided I should really do a bit of work for my English Q300 application....So i have tried to set aside some reading/learning time..
Anyway else in the same boat?
I am in the same boat, yes. I'm applying for Physics and I'm gonna work on my application over the summer, as in fill in the form in an hour then send it.
What i really meant was stuff above and beyond just the ucas form - I mean towards the subject rather than just the p.s etc.
I am, I'm studying physics, what I've done is buy the "Feynman Lectures on Physics" series and am reading through that (its a first year undergraduate course from CalTec), its a tough read but I think its worthwhile, should prepare me nicely for my undergrad physics course.
You have some awesome grades, there Andrew_2006 you should definitely apply to oxbridge English, especially with the full marks in English Lit.
I'm applying for English, so basically my holiday is reading more books!
Yup more work experience and continuing voluntary work while still having fun oh yeah and trying to rearrange my trip to work in an orphanga abroad
Well ja because personal statement is practucally done..
I'm applying for English too. So, the summer will include lots of reading.
Won't you want to include references to some of the books you read this summer in your PS?
I'll be doing lots of practice for my grade 8 (applying for music) but that's not just for my uni application, it's a hobby anyway.
Then I'll start writing my Personal Statement I guess.
Just the usual. Writing my personal statement and doing some work experience.
Just remembered, need to do some background reading for the interviews aswel.
Yep. I drew up my reading list today, pretty scary/ long. I want to apply for philosophy and have read a few books, some of which I'll use in my personal statement, some which are just useful as background reading to give context. What I'm not sure about is how thourough or prepared to be.
oh yeh... and I'll have to fit Harry Potter 7 into this reading list too.
ive plannedd sooo much stuff this summer
including youth work and kids club..also working with speicla needs clients
and starting my statement
Yup definately touching up on my work experience am doing it in two places. Then lots of reading on politics which i will have to fit in once i have written my extended essay draft along with my economics coursework arghhhhh...i have to hate ib sometimes...
Hmmm ive had a lazy summer, i should have got a job, done voluntary work and started my statement.
Aint done none of it arrrgh!
Its lucky i work good under pressure. *cough*
