Becoming familiar with UK university entrance exams is essential for students wanting to gain entrance to many of the most competitive universities within the UK.
How do students prepare for University entrance exams with tuition?
The first stage that any committed applicant needs, is to fully understand the paper that they are taking. The university entrance exams are quite different to A levels and IB and so require a different strategy.
After discussing the strategy of their specific exams, our students will typically be set some practice work by their tutor. This will help them to hone the skills needed to score the highest marks on these exams
Finally the tutor and student will complete 1,2, or even more practice papers. This allows students to see where they are making mistakes and how to rectify them.
Tutors will focus on showing students how to write their essays and how to structure an effective argument. Students will learn how to understand the nature of typical essay questions and what the admissions team are searching for in an ideal candidate. Applicants are expected to present persuasive arguments that touch upon cultural, moral, political and legal issues.
Tutors work with students to understand the strategic nature of the short questions. They cover timing and subject knowledge needed to score highly in these sections of exams. By the end of the programme, students should be confident with this style of exam and understand the patterns seen in the types of questions typically asked.
