TENC visit Pembroke College
TENC is very proud of its number of applications to Oxford and Cambridge universities and do a lot to prepare our students for the process. On Tuesday 3rd March , a group of Year 12 students from Ferrers, Huxlow and Rushden spent a most enjoyable and informative day at Pembroke College, Cambridge University. The students were a credit their schools.
The day was very much focused on the Oxbridge Application Process, and following a really helpful talk on the university itself and how to apply, they were given the opportunity to ask questions of current students at Pembroke. Our group had a tour of the beautiful college buildings and were treated to lunch in the most impressive dining hall alongside other students and university lecturers. The afternoon sessions explored the application process further and students actually met and were given advice by the Pembroke Admissions Tutor. They were encouraged to think about the importance of their UCAS personal statements and particularly to focus on the “super curriculum” the additional reading and research they need to carry out in connection with the subject they want to study.
It was an inspiring day and really helped them on their journey to an Oxbridge application.
