Last Friday, 6.1 students attended lectures from university representatives from the University of Southampton to help with our UCAS applications. We were given an informative understanding of how personal statements should be structured and what universities are looking for in them. Our second lecture was a fantastic investigation into terrorism, giving us an idea of how interesting our courses will become at university level. On Saturday we visited the Library where 48 OBs who are currently studying at university were ready to talk to us. The variety in subject and university choices gave us all a chance to discuss our future options with people already experiencing it. The two days gave us good knowledge of the universities and how to achieve places.
