Graduated!What: University admissions open evening
When: 6:30pm, Tuesday 5 May, 2015
Where: Breadalbane Community Campus
Who: Open to parents and pupils

Don’t miss the university admissions open evening at Breadalbane Academy. Come along at 6:30pm, next Tuesday (5 May). It’s your chance to talk to school guidance teachers, university admissions officers, SQA representatives, PKC education department, and other experts.

The evening will start with a panel discussion, move on to an open Q & A and then finish with a chance to meet the speakers over a tea or coffee. Parents have been great about submitting questions in advance, but we still want to hear from you.

What do you want to know about how to prepare and apply for university? Questions so far include:

  • If ‘five Highers in one sitting’ is no longer going to be the norm, what’s the new “gold standard” for courses such as law and medicine?
  • Do children whose schools offer 6 or more Nat 5 subjects have an advantage over kids from schools that only offer 5?
  • What makes a good personal statement? With competition for some courses so fierce, what do pupils have to do in order to stand out from the crowd?

What questions would you add?

The event isn’t just for S5 and S6 pupils and their parents. It’s open to any parents and older pupils who are interested in finding out how the university admissions system works, and is changing. Pitlochry pupils and parents are also welcome.
