The Sixth Form Team is excited to announce that of the 104 university applications that have been sent to UCAS by Ipswich School pupils, 93% of students have received at least one offer before the closing deadline this month. In addition to this, 34% of the hopeful applicants have received all of their decisions.
Of all the university places offered, one was for a veterinary course, one was for medicine, and one was to study Theology at Oxford University. Seven students were given offers by Cambridge University, to study courses such as Maths, Economics, History & Modern Languages, Human, Social & Political Sciences, Asian & Middle Eastern Studies, Natural Sciences and Modern & Medieval Languages.
Mr Calver, Deputy Head of Sixth Form and Head of Careers congratulated everybody on their achievements and spoke about what is next to come in terms of UCAS. For example, applications for student finance open in February.
Mr Calver also recommends that students should wait until after the A Level Mock Exams before confirming which university will be their first and insurance choices, in order to be certain of the suitablilty of these choices. The deadline is not until the 1st of May.
Year 12 have also been inducted into the process of UCAS, through designated lessons in the new Sixth Form Life Skills programme ‘The Edge.’ They have already started their research into university courses and are ready to start the UCAS process properly later this year.
Congratulations to everybody who achieved such wonderful offers!
