What do Admission Officials Look for in an Application?

Students applying for admissions this year must curate their application well in advance but if you haven’t submitted your application yet, here are some tips from the University of Cambridge and University of Oxford Admissions Tutor.  

  • Academic potential of the student in the subject applied for at the university.
  • The motivation and subject interest of the student should be reflected in the application and the personal statement.
  • Admission test scores (Subject Based). These are planned to be conducted between 18th to 20th October 2023. 
  • Student’s thinking process and ability to articulate ideas in the statement of interest. 
  • You must display a presence of mind and have an in-depth knowledge of the subject. Moreover, you can respond to impromptu questions in this way.
  • A consistent extracurricular exploration of the subject will be an added advantage. 
  • Choosing a specific college will not affect the status of your application or influence the admission procedure. It is only your first preference.  

With this, students can improve their application and therefore their chances of admission to the university. If you want to read more such exciting information, make sure you follow Leverage Edu News Updates.
