THE Budehaven Sixth Form students are currently making their plans to study at University this autumn.
Sixty-seven students have applied for places at universities all over the UK this year and the school is very proud that many have received some excellent conditional offers.
Often, the application process involves sitting entrance exams and some rigorous interviews; Budehaven’s students have acquitted themselves extremely well this year.
The Sixth Form at Budehaven spends a considerable amount of time helping students prepare for interviews. The school has been very lucky to have the support of Mark Duncan and Professor Meryll Dean who have voluntarily coached students, providing them with the confidence to perform well.
Of the students who have applied to university, Kelsey Wosnitzka has received an offer to read Medicine at Hull York Medical School. In addition to this offer, she has also received a conditional place at Liverpool to read Bio-Medical Science. Applying for places to read Medicine at university is very competitive and to achieve an interview and an offer is an amazing achievement for Kelsey.
Other students who have received very good offers in their fields are: Katie Loader to Exeter University to study Geography, and Lily Hunt to Gloucester and UWE to read Accounting and Finance.
Shaun Foster has a conditional offer to read Modern Languages at Kings College, The University of Cambridge. Shaun undertook a series of rigorous interviews and can be very proud of such an achievement.
Olivia Angilley has applied to read Dentistry and has received an offer from Plymouth University in this highly competitive field. She also has two interviews to prepare for at Bristol and Liverpool.
Furthermore, Emma Fanet has received a conditional offer to read Paramedic Science at Oxford Brookes University, a fantastic achievement under competitive conditions.
After a strenuous interview process, Tiegan Goodege has received a conditional offer for Primary Teaching at The University of Gloucestershire, whilst Emily Fanson has received a conditional offer from Cardiff Met to read Sport and Physical Education.
Sarah Harker has five conditional offers to read Geography at universities such as UWE, Portsmouth and Gloucester.
Budehaven’s students’ choices demonstrate a Sixth Form with proven high aspirations and every promise for success. Budehaven always sets out to prepare Sixth Form students for university life in such a way that the transition from school to university is smooth, because students have not only worked hard, they have also matured as young adults able to cope as readily with examinations as with the immense opportunities, which university life presents.
A spokesman said: “It is good to see that hard work is really paying off, with first class offers from universities right across the UK being made to local students who deserve every success in their exams.”
