It is well known that students that have a real interest and read around subjects outside of their specifications will often achieve more highly at A-level.
Universities and employers are looking for enthused, engaged and excellent candidates who show a passion for their studies. Cambridge University have stated, "As our admissions decisions are based on academic criteria we expect to see evidence of students' super-curricular activities and wider engagement with their wider area of academic interest such as reading and other exploration relevant to the course applied for".
Please find below the Subject Induction Preparation Tasks, which you are expected to complete over the summer that will help to prepare your for your A level studies. To inspire you further, we have provided optional further reading, films and podcasts alongside links to the examination boards and the A Level specifications.
Consolidation of your GCSE knowledge will help to prepare you for your A Level studies. The Study Skills section will provide you with lots of ideas on how to be successful at A Level. We hope to have an enjoyable summer and look forward to welcoming you to the Ribston Sixth Form in September.
