Chapter 3 : Why one of the alternatives may be better

CONTENTS

1. Want the opportunity for more breadth

Conversely, it may be that youre struggling to narrow down just 3 subjects you wish to continue. In this case, the IB diplomais a really attractive alternative see our guide for more information.

2. Not as well established

The Pre-U is new, and as few schools do it, and the schools which do it tend to be some of the best schools in the country, it limits the amount of privilege universities can afford the Pre-U.

 
“We have to be very careful that we don't allow a particular qualification an advantage in the process. If we did that it might become divisive. Yes, it will help us to distinguish between the top students - but only between the top students who are offering the Pre-U. It isn't going to impact on students coming via different routes.”
Angela Milln, Director of Admissions at the University of Bristol

3. Practical considerations

One practical consideration is that there may not be any schools nearby offering the Pre-U, or the ones that are nearby do not offer the desired subjects. See our page on finding a school to check.
