Thursday’s exam results spell the beginning of the end of the application process for all those students who finished their A2’s this year. But for those in lower sixth form, the whole agonising process of thinking, preparing for and applying for university begins now. With AS results in the bag, and predicted grade tags flying about, the elimination process of working out which universities to consider applying for begins.
An article on the Telegraph website about Easing the pain of student poverty, published on August 18th, has recommended TSR as a source of help and advice on finding jobs while at university.
Last week TSR announced the beginning of its 21 day challenge, a series of daily advice, tips and challenges to help young people form the good habits of job searching that will give them a head start over other young people.
With A-Level results released today, and huge numbers of young people set to head off to university in the coming months, it should come as good news to them that two thirds of graduates of all ages have attested that university was the most influential period of their lives, ahead of childhood, teenage years, first jobs, and even marriage, shattering the common myth that your childhood years are the best of your life.
TSR has this week teamed up with the Department of Work and Pensions to offer its members a 21 day job challenge, to offer practical tips and advice when it comes to searching for and applying for jobs – covering everything from writing CVs, and preparing for interviews, to the most efficient methods of finding those suitable vacancies in the first place.
A-Level results are released today and thousands of students will finally find out their results after weeks of agonising waiting. For many, results day will bring smiles and joy as students open their envelopes to see that they met their grades, and got into their universities of choice. For some though, this year’s results day may not bring about all they had hoped for.
With A-Level exam results less than 24 hours away from being released, the thought going through most student’s minds tomorrow when they open their results envelope will be “have I made my offer or not?”
The seventh annual NatWest Student Living index, released today, reveals that the average student weekly spend has gone down to £185 in the last year, down from 2009 where the average was over £200.
A recent survey by independent university website Push has shown that student debt levels have continued to rise
Despite being seen as an underprivileged and financially challenged bunch, a recent survey by student insurers Endsleigh has found that the average student will take approximately £4000 worth of belongings with them when they move into student accommodation. Furthermore, some students carry as much as £1300 worth of gear with them as they travel to and from universities.
