October Half-Term: Thursday 26th & Friday 27th October 2017

University Admissions Preparation Courses in Cambridge

Over October 2017 half-term, Independent Thinkers ran two days of university admissions preparation workshops in Cambridge.

These workshops were carefully designed to help sixth-form students develop the intellectual skills they need to tackle university admissions assessments with confidence. We delivered courses in the following Oxbridge admissions assessments: the ELAT; the PAT; the TSA; Cambridge admissions assessments in the Natural Sciences and Engineering; and the ‘Reading Comprehension’ tests set by Cambridge to assess applicants for degrees in the humanities and social sciences. We also ran LNAT (Law) and BMAT (Medicine) preparation courses.

The courses were run by expert tutors, all educated to at least Masters level, and all with extensive teaching experience, particularly of students aged 15-18, and university undergraduates. All tutors who taught on the courses hold a first class degree and/ or a distinction at Masters level, and all took their first degree at Oxford or Cambridge; several tutors have doctorates.
