FINDING THE RIGHT COLLEGE

FINDING THE RIGHT COLLEGE

As a student, you’re probably already noticing how many universities you can choose from. So how on earth can you get through the pile of options and find the one for you? Here are some tips for students to find the right college for them. Look closely at the courses Although most universities will offer you the same subjects, their individual modules are likely to be very different. So while one university’s English degree involves teaching you nothing but Shakespeare, another could focus on just Harry Potter and Twilight. Curriculum Look for the schools that offer the right courses and facilities offered for the kinds of studies you want to undertake. If you’re not sure yet, look for a school with a broad-based liberal-arts program. If you want science, make sure they have up-to-date labs, computers and other facilities.   Location Decide where you want to go to college. If you need to live at home or just want to be near at your home or if you want to live in a big city with all its other attractions, limit your scope to that area. Look at the rankings Some universities will open more doors than others. If you’re looking for a prestigious school, or even just one that is really fantastic in a certain subject area, it’s a good idea to check out their rankings to find out who’s the cream of the crop and who should be at the bottom of your options. Size If you think you might be overwhelmed at a large university, look for a school with a smaller number of students. But remember, even at a larger school, after your first couple of years, classroom size gets smaller and you get to know the students in your major area of study. Sports and Activities A rich social life is an important part of college. Find out if the school you’re interested in has clubs or other organizations you can participate in. If you like big-time athletics, make sure your college has the teams in the sports you want to watch or intramural programs you can play in.

Ask other students Want to find out what the university is really like? Then there’s no one better to ask than current students – after all, they’re living it right now. They’ll be honest about what’s great, what sucks and whether it’s worth going to.

Cost Find out what the tuition, fees, room and board charges will be at your choices. You can also find out what the average student pays after financial assistance is factored in. The results can be surprising.

Mia Golosino has an IQ level which is higher than Einstein’s.

Mia Golosino has an IQ level which is higher than Einstein’s.

Despite having an IQ higher than Einstein, a young girl was not accepted at Aylesbury High School.

One of the most intelligent children in the world, Mia Golosino has set her heart that she will be going to the school in September, travelling in from her home in Milton Keynes.

Despite graduating with flying colors, Mia was turned down for Aylesbury High School when allocation letters were sent out earlier this year. Because of that, she decided to attend the Royal Latin School in Buckingham instead.

Her parents, IT manager Jose and full-time mum Mary were amazed to find that Mia scored the highest possible mark of 162 IQ – more than Albert Einstein.

The Aylesbury High School told the parents that the refusal was due to the school being oversubscribed. Also, it could be another reason that her siblings already attending the school.

Headteacher Alan Rosen said that “In common with all state schools, we publish our admission criteria on our website, and encourage all would-be applicants to study them to see who will be admitted in the event of over-subscription.

We do not, as some people might assume, give priority to the highest-scoring qualified pupils; in terms of the transfer test, all that matters is that a pupil has achieved the qualifying score, and that is a principle that is common across Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools.

From the qualified pupils, the main criteria give priority to those with siblings at either AGS or AHS, those in receipt of Free School Meals and within our catchment area, and then all others who are in catchment on the basis of the distance from their home.

We then take qualified pupils from outside our catchment area, and they are also admitted on home-to-school distance.

This means that every year we take all qualified applicants up to a certain radius; the distance is published on the Bucks CC website for all over-subscribed secondary schools, not just the grammar schools.

We are always happy to answer questions about the admission system for our school, and work with all Bucks Grammar Schools, primary schools and Bucks CC to ensure that the transfer process is as clear and joined-up as we can make it.”

Jose and Mary migrated to Milton Keynes after uprooting from the Philippines 10 years ago, have asked for Mia’s story to be shared to inspire other youngsters.

Jose added, “We thought it might inspire other families’ kids who did not get into their preferred school.”
