UCAS day is an amazing opportunity for our Year 12 students to familiarise themselves with UCAS and their university application process for next year. Ashbourne arranged several talks with guest speakers from Russell Group Universities, as well as a talk by Amy Youngman and Sean Pillai, Deputy Heads of Year 13, about how to use UCAS and how to create an outstanding personal statement.
It is clear that students who attend UCAS day are more efficient with their application, have gained more skills, learned how to manage their time more efficiently, thus having more chances of receiving the offers they desire. We encourage our students to build their CVs by taking on extra curricular activities and work experience during the summer.
