Information for University applicants

More than 540,000 students apply for a place at UK universities annually.

The proportion of A-levels awarded at least an A grade fell for the first time in more than 20 years.

The competition among the applicants  becomes tougher each year. Universities are likely to have less flexibility to admit students who just miss this standard, as there is still a strict cap on those who score less than AAB.

Many students are rejected due to weak applications:

  • inadequate documents;
  • poor personal statements;
  • poorly presented portfolios;
  • uninteresting study proposals

We assist students to prepare high-quality applications for entry to top universities.
