How to make the most of the summer holidays to maximise your university application is the topic of the webinar from our partners at Keystone Tutors. Ed Richardson, Managing Director of Keystone, will be joined by Jenny McGowan, Keystone Director in Asia, to to discuss the sorts of preparation students can complete over the Summer Holidays of Year 12 to ensure they submit a strong UCAS application. The discussion will cover how to prepare effectively with particular reference to the importance of super-curricular learning, admissions tests and the personal statement.
The webinar will be most relevant to current Year 11 and Year 12 students but also suitable for younger students and parents planning ahead.
We were delighted to meet Dominik again today, who will be completing his A-Levels at Framlingham College in two weeks' time. Dominik originally wanted to spend only one term at Framlingham in Year 8, but it turned into five years in total. His English is so good that he now prefers it over speaking German. His current role as Head of CCF is, in his words, the peak of his stay at Framlingham. After completing his A-Levels, Dominik plans to study law or politics. Framlingham was the best decision of his life, he confirmed to us again today!
