SAT and University Visits

Class of 2020, story so far…

Around a quarter of the cohort now have offers from the UK. Some of these offers came through within hours of sending the application. BSM must have a very strong reputation with the UK admissions teams. We also have promising news about the EA/ED applications sent to the US last week. Several students have been offered local interviews with Alumni. We will be rigorously preparing them for these.

This week we are turning our attention to Canadian applications and the independent University of California application system.

Within lessons we have started preparing students for the social and emotional transition that they face when they depart BSM and embark on travels, work or study. We are asking them to make life adjustments that many of us would be daunted by. Consequently, we take this part of our role extremely seriously.
