Outstanding success in university applications
30 Jan 2019
Perse students are celebrating high numbers of university offers so far this year with many still yet to come.
190 students applied to university and have so far received over 500 offers, including 437 from the leading Russell Group of universities.
39 students have received offers from Cambridge and Oxford.
Head Ed Elliott commented:
“I take a keen interest in students’ university applications and I read and approve every school reference written in support of a Perse applicant to university.
Perse Sixth Formers apply to many of the most demanding courses and institutions in the UK and overseas, so it is very encouraging to see such a high early success rate. This includes 50 offers to read English and related subjects and 44 offers to read Economics and related subjects.
I congratulate the students on their well-researched and written university applications which are underpinned by very good GCSE results and strong A level/Pre U predicted grades.
Our Sixth Form tutors and university applications team have worked hard to guide students through the application process, advising on personal statements and assisting with interview practice and academic preparation.
Ultimately we want students to make the best university and course choices for them and then ensure they obtain the grades needed to secure those offers.”
