Event description


Join Elite IB Tutors for an evening seminar, focusing on how the International Baccalaureate and the UK university application system (UCAS) fit together. The talk will go through crucial information in tackling the IB diploma, and using it to your advantage in applying to UK universities.

With recent changes to the UCAS weighting system, and choices now limited to only 5 selections, it is imperative that students are well versed on application protocol. Do you require HL Maths to study Engineering? Will taking 4 Higher Levels boost your application? What are the deadlines for UCAS submission and will early submission help your chances of gaining an Oxbridge place?

Please see a recent blog post written on previous talks held.

This seminar is perfect for students in either their first or second year of the IB Diploma programme and their parents. At each event, free documentation will be provided including an IB advice book, an IB specific UCAS required grade matrix, and IB-specific wall calendars.
