On Wednesday 20th March, 10 students with the potential to apply to Oxford or Cambridge Universities, travelled to Aintree Racecourse to take part in a conference. The day provided an invaluable opportunity for Range sixth formers to meet with like-minded students from other schools and colleges.
The students were able to chose which sessions they wished to attend throughout the day, tailoring them to their own interests. Some sessions where designed to give general advice, such as, ‘Making a Competitive Application’ and ‘Student Finance and Careers, whilst others took the form of taster lectures on subjects ranging from Medicine to Asian & Middle Eastern Studies and Oriental Studies.
The students found the day interesting and informative.
