Applications

In most cases students will apply to five universities

We recommend that these institutions should be visited according to Glyn’s Open Day guidelines

It is important to consider reserve choice carefully, in line with expected results

Entry criteria for ‘insurance’ choice should be different to the ‘firm’ or aspirational choice.

Open Days

Open Days are a fantastic opportunity for students to get a realistic feel for university and to decide which is the best 'fit' for them.

Parents/Guardians must notify Mrs Bennett PA to the Sixth Form Leadership of any Open Days which students wish to attend prior to attending

Students are permitted to attend three Open Days during term time per academic year.

You can use the excellent search tool on the UCAS website to see when and where Open Days are being held: UCAS Open Day search tool https://www.ucas.com/ucas/events/find/type/open-day.
