Please take some time to read this very interesting article from the guardian.
Its detailing how the competition for top ranking business universities like Warwick and LSE want more then grades and acknowledgement of extra curricular activities. Students now need to apply this knowledge and understand how these activities have shaped them. Most importantly what have them learned from them!!
Please see quote below from the article.
"Critically reflective essay writing skills are also important for a business studies student, says Corvi, so if you studied an essay based subject like English, history or economics, do mention your knowledge in this area.
The University of Warwick wants to see that students are able to formulate a rational argument and write it to length. Corvi says: "Some of our strong applicants are missing this skill."
Extract from the article above.
Universites want you to really have a passion for the subject that you are going to study!! It says in the article that there are more students applying then places available so they need to choose people who understand what they have learned not just from acadmic achievements but non acadmic too.
Universities want you to have your own voice and most important be fully responsible for your own study and time. Remember your degree is an independent learning experince.
Please see the video below made for you about "Choosing the right degree". Before you make any decisions think carefully about some the the things I talk about here.
Wishing you all the best for those of you who are choosing and thinking about your degree options.
All the best
