The Sun (Malaysia) - - EDUCATION FOCUS -

HAV­ING a good de­gree from a lead­ing UK univer­sity is a very use­ful start­ing point. But what does one have to do to get into a top univer­sity? The fol­low­ing guide­lines will help you to un­der­stand what it takes to get there: with ex­ams at the end of each. You should aim to achieve 90% or above in all of the AS-Level ex­am­i­na­tion mod­ules you sit dur­ing your first year. The first year is crit­i­cal be­cause at the end of it, you will need to make a de­ci­sion about which de­gree course to study and at which univer­sity.

Fur­ther­more, your col­lege will be re­quired to give its pre­dicted grades for your fi­nal ALevel re­sults. These will be based on your per­for­mance at AS-Level, there­fore it is es­sen­tial to start well. want to know about you as an in­di­vid­ual, over and above your aca­demic per­for­mance. feel con­fi­dent that your col­lege will recog­nise your tal­ents and write an ex­cel­lent ref­er­ence to in­crease your chances of suc­cess. Make sure your ref­eree is aware of all the things you have done in order to pre­pare for your course.
