Year 11 into Year 12 Preparation

When you start your post-16 journey, you will be busy with your academic studies, but did you know that universities and employers look for something extra when considering application forms and deciding who to accept? They look for specific academic skills that cannot be evidenced in a formal exam – this is where the Academic LORIC will help you:

Leadership  Organisation  Resilience  Initiative  Communication

Universities and employers are impressed when students have completed wider reading and research, but they want to know what the students have done as a result of the wider reading.

They want to hear what the reading and research has led to e.g. further reading and discovery, starting a society, inspired an EPQ etc. What they do not want is just a list.

Whichever resource you are using, you must make the most of it by using Cornell notes (Google these if you need to) to record what you have learned and what you are going to do next as a result.

The other benefit of engaging with these materials is that you are also preparing yourself for your A Level learning – ready to get going as soon as the new academic year starts.
