Should our students be choosing their university places after they receive their A Level results?
Many career advisors, school bosses and students have welcomed the proposed idea of reforming university applications. The reform would give students the opportunity to pick the course(s) and university after they received the grades.
The changes would mean that students would take their exams earlier in the year and would then apply for places over the summer. UCAS has talked about implementing this scheme by 2016, but many students are holding their breaths.
As a career advisor we would welcome any changes that benefited A level students and gave them a better and more rounded view of what they were going to do after their A levels. If you want to talk to a career advisor, contact Career Analysts.
