A phenomenal ten offers to study at either Cambridge or Oxford or to take up medical courses, have been made to current Y13 students at St Bart’s Sixth Form. Students have succeeded in a rigorous entry process, including tests and interviews at the College or University of their choice.
This exceptional year is down to the specialised support offered but mostly down to the hard work and attitude of the students. They have supported each other through the whole process and encouraged each other to aim high. In particular, this cohort of prospective medics worked to set up a St Bart’s Medical Society to discuss ethical and scientific issues to pursue their passion. We are incredibly proud of all of them.
The offers from Oxford are to Rhian Bevan to read Law, Arun Bhandari, Biochemistry and Oliver Smithson, English Language & Literature. Whilst the offers from Cambridge are to Emily Beck to study Classics, Christopher Long, Natural Sciences and James Read, Computer Science.
Joseph Seward has offers to study Medicine at Bristol and Southampton, George Freer also has offers to study Medicine at Southampton, Leicester and Birmingham. Chloe Leftley has offers to study Medicine at UCL, Edinburgh and Birmingham. Finally, Izzy Sanderson has been offered places to study Veterinary Medicine at Nottingham and Surrey.
The majority of Y13 students at St Bart’s have been applying to a range of universities and higher education courses through the UCAS system for entry later this year. Overall 165 applications for university have been made by students. Others are planning for gap years and have been successful in obtaining apprenticeships in many fields including accountancy and engineering.
