I'm in year 12 and achieved good GCSE results last year (3 9s, 7 A*s and an A in Add Maths). I'm currently looking at going to a subject specific masterclass for physics and/or chemistry as I want to apply for natural science next year. How useful are the masterclasses? Are they useful just as a personal thing or can they also help with a university application? Will I look like an idiot turning up? How do I suggest going to my parents (I would have to get a lift)? I don't know how they would feel about me applying to Cambridge.
Have you done any of these?
