This term has been one of the most exciting in terms of our St Peter’s journey; visiting universities and seeing the different courses and societies that are on offer has been very interesting, but also nerve-racking! As Year 13 students we are now making crucial decisions about our next steps forward. But we have had so much support, which honestly makes the process so much easier.
Since submitting our university applications at the start of this year many of us have been trekking around the country attending our interviews and auditions. Receiving university offers is very rewarding, not just for us but also for our teachers who have helped us to write our personal statements and practice for interviews/auditions. And now, choosing accommodation and sorting out Student Finance is reinforcing the fact that we are growing up (although many of our parents may disagree!).
Attending offer-holder days and sitting alongside equally passionate students is a privilege. Experiencing where we will live and study for the next 3 or 4 years of our lives is reassuring; of course we all hope that the decisions we have made so far will prove correct. It is an exciting time and – now that the hard part of applying is done – our minds turn to the forthcoming exams and securing those grades that are needed!
