Grade 10 and 11 - Now is the time to start preparing for US/UK university admissions

Studying at a prestigious university in the US & UK is a dream for many South African students, however, South Africans are often unaware of what is required and how competitive the application process is. Getting accepted requires careful planning, preparation, a solid university application strategy, and access to expert tutors and mentors - all of which begins much earlier than your final grade 12 year!

To achieve your dream you will need to consider the following:

  • Personal Statement - In applications to US & UK universities, the personal statement holds a unique degree of importance. A good UK personal statement will make for a bad US one.
  • Find your best-fit university and course - There are a range of universities in the world, all very different to one another in teaching approach, number of years, course structure, course outcomes and much more…
  • Application support - Ensure you have clear application plans, timelines and milestones in order to receive the acceptances you hope for.
  • Improve your chances of acceptance through SAT/ACT tests - For South African students, the SAT/ ACT test are your chance to show admissions officers how good you really are. Choose the test that is best suited to you.
  • Write the Perfect Essay - Depending on where you apply US, UK, Europe, Canada, etc, you will have a number of essays to submit. Knowing how to structure these essays for admissions officers will make the world of difference.
  • Extracurricular and Leadership - Plan your extracurricular and leadership activities to help you ‘put your best foot forward,’ when applying to your dream university.
