Ambitious University Applications

A group of young, ambitious pupils took advantage of the opportunity to pick the brains of their teachers and peers on Thursday afternoon to find out about what it takes to make a successful application to an elite university.

The message from all speakers was clear; passion for the subject is key. Louis Sharpe-Ward (Upper Sixth, Gascoigne) and Alex Billing (Upper Sixth, Vanbrugh) gave some very helpful insights into their experiences at interview, emphasising the importance of not being phased by questions that demand thought. Pupils left recognising the challenge ahead of them and determined to rise to it.
