Chapter 2 : 3 reasons Pre-U may be right for you

CONTENTS

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.

2. Want an edge over other students

Pre-U courses are harder than A-Levels, and universities know this. Each subject for Pre-U requires 400 teaching hours, in contrast to 360 hours for A-Levels. In particular, the skills the GPR course equips you with are very attractive to universities.

3. YOU DONT WANT THE BREADTH OF IB

The above points also apply to the IB diploma. But unlike the IB diploma, the Pre-U allows for greater specialization. So, if you already know what you want to study, it may be for you!
