Post 16 information

Post 16 information

Over the past few months we have held the Year 11 Information evening, mock exams and now we are the stage where Post 16 applications have to be completed in readiness to process and send early in the New Year.
All students have had access to the My Choice website and have been provided with their log in details.If these have been forgotten please contact your form tutor.
All students have started to write their personal statements with Mr Compton leading a masterclass during one lesson. All follow up work and continuation of statement writing will need to be completed at home. First drafts can be written up in word, then checked by form tutors or yourselves then uploaded to the personal statement section on the application site. We ask that this is completed by the 16th December.
The predicted grades accompanying the post 16 applications are not the ones that are available on the student’s assessment pages on the intranet. We have used a slightly different method for those grades, one that we feel gives an accurate reflection of the grade each student will achieve.
To help you complete the application, you will find an instruction leaflet on the right hand side of this page. Several sections have been pre-populated with information and we ask that students double check these are correct. Choosing courses also needs to be completed on this application, we would suggest making applications to at least two institutions as a bare minimum.
When exploring through the website, you will notice somel sections are not yet completed, BVC will add each individual’s qualifications and a tutor reference.
In the coming weeks, we will be offering each student a short meeting with a member of the year team to check through their application, personal statement and chosen courses.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Cook or Mr Perry
