Here’s how you can enter Oxbridge

-

MANY top scorers and high achievers have already signed up for the upcoming Oxbridge Applicatio­n Prep Course in KL and Penang.

“The most important preparatio­n is to be passionate about your subject specialism and research it beyond what is available at school. You need to practise thinking in a critical way, with close attention to the details of language.

“Students need to be supported by teachers and parents who will engage them in mature conversati­on about academic studies and support themselves by being aware of the relationsh­ip of their subject to real issues,” said Dr Michael Brett, one of the guests speakers from the UK.

With the Parents’ Workshop running in conjunctio­n with the Oxbridge Applicatio­n Prep Course, parents can hear and learn from the experts to make informed decisions to actively help their child.

The Oxbridge Applicatio­n Prep Course seats for both parents and students are limited and anyone interested is strongly encouraged to register now.
