Budehaven Sixth Form students are currently making their plans to study at University this winter.
62 students have applied for places at Universities all over the United Kingdom and farther afield this year and the school is very proud that many have received some excellent conditional offers. Often the application process involves GMAT Prep and rigorous interviews, so Budehaven students have acquitted themselves extremely well.
Going global, Dan Morecroft Rice has received offers to read Political Science at Rhode Island University and Pace University, New York in the USA. He has also received an offer to read International Studies at Oregon State University. Dan also has offers in the UK to read International Studies, so he has the option of venturing to LSE or Durham.
Of the students who have applied to University, William Atkinson has received an offer to read History and Politics at The Universities of Kent, Warwick and UCL. Other students who have received very good offers in their fields are Rory Mead to Bath University and Loughborough to study Sport and Exercise Science, and Cameron Putt to Exeter and Southampton to read Marine Biology.
Eryn Martin has conditional offers to read English at the Universities of Southampton, Bristol and Cardiff. Ava du Plessis has applied to read Sociology and has received an offer from Plymouth University and Exeter University. Furthermore, Jonathan Jose has received a conditional offer to read History at Lincoln University.
Budehaven Sixth Form spends a considerable amount of time helping students prepare for interviews. The sixth form has been very lucky to have the support of Mark Duncan and Professor Meryll Dean who have voluntarily coached the students providing them with the confidence to perform well.
After a strenuous application process, Olivia Moyle has received conditional offers for Law at the universities of Reading, Cardiff and Surrey. Olivia has taken the LNAT, the Law application exam and is waiting for a reply from Bristol. Isobel Nesham has received a conditional offer from Bristol UWE to read Psychology. Abigail Cottier has also received many conditional offers to read Law. She has received them from some of the top Russell Group Universities, such as Cardiff and Queen Mary University, London. Enya Lindsay is also keen to read Law and has an offer at Bristol UWE.
Joseph Hussey has done extremely well to receive offers from the universities of Southampton, Manchester, Bristol and Bath to read Aerospace Engineering and Aeronautics. Ben Morrison is also a keen scientist and has conditional offers from the universities of Bristol, Cardiff, Bath and Southampton to read Chemistry.
The current Year 12 are beginning their journey on the UCAS path. Several students have been selected to be part of The University of Exeter Progression Scheme where they attend workshops on subjects such as ancient history, theology, bioscience, geology and mining. They also will be attending the UCAS convention in Exeter in March.
The students’ choices demonstrate the Sixth Form has proven high aspirations with every promise of success. One of the things which Budehaven always sets out to achieve is to prepare Sixth Form students for university life in such a way that the transition from school to university is smooth, because students have not only worked hard, they have also matured as young adults able to cope as readily with examinations as with the immense opportunities which university life presents.
It is good to see that hard work is really paying off, with first class offers from universities right across the UK being made to local students who deserve every success in their exams.
