Useful links for sixth form students

Discussion in 'Secondary' started by 700W, Jan 6, 2012.

  1. Hi,

    Next week I am starting a new role mentoring sixth form students. I am wanting to set up a useful links website with regards to study skills and tips for applying for university.
    If anyone has any useful links that you'd like to share with me that would be great. In return I could private message you a link to the site. It's set up in my name so I don't want to share it on here.

    Hi, The Univ of Manchester has some excellent resources that they have produced for the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). There are really good resources for study skills and researching.
    They can be found here...

    Als, the Russel Group of Universities have a very good guide to prospective and current students about requirements for different courses:

    Would love a link to your site [​IMG]
    Good luck

    700W many universities have excellent study guides for their students, ferrisbueller has already mentioned manchester - much of the advice I think also applies to older students in schools.
    Some of my own favourites are here.
    Also note the links on these pages: Independence, and UCAS.
    I'm sure you are very familiar with the UCAS site, I think their reflective questions, glossary of competencies and subject skills are worth pointing out to students.

     
  4. Not necessarily directly linked but useful for students (and staff) is the exams timetable site.
    It gives dates for all boards and all exams and at least 2 sessions ahead ( although some dates provisional) i.e they can find out the date of the summer session exams now.
    Makes them take responsibility for planning of time and finding out which spec they are following.

    Would love to see a link to your site. Thanks [​IMG]
