The IB & UK Universities – Making the Most of Your Choices, Antwerp
Join EIB Education for an evening seminar, focusing on how the International Baccalaureate and the UK university application system (UCAS) fit together. The talk will contain crucial guidance on tackling the IB diploma, as well how to use it to your advantage when applying to UK universities.
How do UCAS and the IB fit together? Will taking 4 Higher Levels boost my application? What are the deadlines for UCAS submission and will early submission help my chances of gaining an Oxbridge place? Do I require HL Maths to study Engineering? Do I need 3 Sciences to study Medicine?
This talk will tackle many of the most frequently asked questions from current and future IB students considering applying to the UK for university; with recent and ongoing changes to the UCAS tariff and weighting systems, and modifications to UCAS deadlines in some subjects for 2019, it is imperative that students are well versed on UCAS - but dependable information for IB students is not always easy to come by. The main issues this talk will cover are:
How does the IB compare to A-levels in terms of university applications?
What subjects should I pick and at what level?
What are the key deadlines?
What are the course requirements for the IBDP?
How to dodge or best manage IB stress in April - key exam and revision periods
Information on EIB Revision courses
This seminar is tailored towards students in either their first or second year of the IB Diploma programme and their parents. At each event, free documentation will be provided including an IB advice book, an IB specific UCAS required grade matrix, and IB-specific wall calendars.
