1. Preparation for university
The Pre-U comes with an ethos that emphasises teaching and learning, rather than just preparing for exams. In fact its very goal is to prepare students for university, promoting independent and self-directed learning.
It was designed through consultation with universities on what they wanted to see from applicants. Therefore, you might want to consider it in order to try and bridge the gap between sixth form and university.
“It is a real bonus that Cambridge Pre-U allows more time to understand the course material and go deeper into interesting topics. The exams require true understanding rather than just remembering several equations for a couple of months. This understanding definitely helped with my interview for Oxford and confirmed my choice to do physics at university.
