Students in the college’s Enhancing Excellence group have yet again reaped the rewards of all their hard work, sharp focus and determined motivation, backed by the support and advice of their subject teachers and Enhancing Excellence mentors.
Seven of these students have been fortunate enough to receive conditional places at Oxford and Cambridge University colleges. Another 30 have received offers, or are waiting to hear, from other universities in the worldwide top 30, such as Imperial College London, King’s College London, the University of Edinburgh, and UCL (University College London). We are immensely proud of these students and the diligence that each of these places represents.
This year, too, an unusual number (eight) of our Cambridge hopefuls were ‘pooled’. In other words, the interviewing tutors considered them worthy of a place at Cambridge but could not fit them into the successful cohort. So near and yet so far… but some of these students are already thinking of reapplying next year!
