This year marked another set of outstanding A-level Results at Bosworth Independent College, with an incredible 80% of students achieving at least one A* or A, and 97% of all awarded grades being A* to C.
Bosworth A-level student, Denise, has achieved A*A*A*A*A* in Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Further Maths and EPQ and gained a place at the University of Cambridge to study Natural Sciences.
“I am eager to learn more about science and the practical values of it, and wish to pursue a career in scientific research. In order to achieve that, I will need to not only focus on studying but also to fill my life with different skills and experiences. I am looking forward to going to university to learn and grow more. With the knowledge and experience I’ve gained at Bosworth, I am confident and very excited for my next academic journey, no matter how challenging it will be.”
The University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge agree that academic excellence, a genuine interest in a chosen subject, the ability to undertake independent research, as well as the capability to think on your feet are key aspects in becoming a successful candidate. There are a variety of skills and traits that a student is expected to exhibit alongside their academic potential. These skills are developed during the exclusive Oxbridge Preparation Programme at Bosworth, where all students with high academic aspirations get a chance to prepare for university admissions tests, attend weekly workshops with an Oxbridge coordinator, are encouraged to participate in academic challenges and competitions, receive interview preparation with internal and external specialists, as well as having the opportunity to attend Oxford and Cambridge Conference and other university workshops.
Denise shares her experience living and studying at Bosworth:
Why did you choose to come to Bosworth?
I have always had a desire to be exposed to a multicultural environment. Bosworth is the place where I can enjoy my academic and social life at the same time. That is exactly what I have always
been dreaming of.
What was the teaching like?
In Bosworth, teachers are more than happy to help you with anything you find difficult, but are, at the same time, ready to stretch you with challenging questions. All teachers are available to help you no matter if they teach you or not. The lessons are conducted so well that sometimes time just seems to fly.
Can you share a few sentences about your life at Bosworth?
I studied and lived with the most amazing people. Whilst I’ve learnt so much from the subject discussions I had with my classmates in lessons, I also spent time having fun and creating unforgettable memories with people whom I can now call my second family.
Oxford and Cambridge are looking for candidates who have dedication, initiative, persistence and the ability to communicate well. While the process may seem challenging, the end result will be a rewarding career in a highly competitive field.
This year some of Bosworth’s A-level student destinations include University of Cambridge, King’s College London, University College London (UCL), University of Warwick, London School of Economics (LSE) to name just a few.
