Audrey's Triumph: Overcoming Obstacles to Attend the Prestigious Roedean School, UK

"When I decided to pursue my education in the UK, I faced hurdles. Most schools had passed their application deadlines, and my residential constraints added to the complexity of getting into my preferred school. However, the educational consultants at Pivot Academics didn't let these obstacles deter them. They passionately advocated for my admission into one of the top schools in my area, and their relentless efforts paid off. My family and I were overjoyed when I was accepted, and the consultants maintained close contact with me throughout my educational journey in the UK, offering unparalleled care and attention that is hard to find elsewhere!"

Audrey, a proud student of Hong Kong's Sha Tin College (ESF Sha Tin College), always had her sights set on the UK's illustrious Roedean School. In 2019, 54.8% of Roedean School students attained A*/A grades in A Level examinations, placing the school 75th among boarding schools.

Despite Audrey’s aspirations, she missed many application deadlines for UK boarding schools due to unfamiliarity with the admission process. Once the UK admissions consultants at Pivot Academics took over Audrey's case, they tirelessly liaised with the school within a tight timeframe, ultimately helping Audrey secure admission to the renowned Roedean School. They also resolved all post-admission difficulties, including fees, accommodation, enrollment matters, and other miscellaneous issues.

The mission to secure James' admission to Lancing School was fraught with hurdles: tight deadlines, admission interviews, preparation of recommendation letters, to name a few, made the application process challenging. However, the UK admissions consultants at Pivot Academics rose to the occasion and successfully navigated the complexities, ensuring a 100% success rate to land James in the school of his dreams.

"I've always faced difficulties in my learning journey, but Sunny, my mentor at Pivot Academics, didn’t give up on me. They helped me conquer IGCSE Mathematics, securing an A* at the tender age of nine! Never underestimating my potential, and offering unwavering support during examination times, Sunny truly epitomises an exceptional mentor 😊."

Sunny's classes were really helpful. He managed to identify and improve my weakness. The tedious concepts were delivered in a comprehensive way. I was able to be clearer about the content after every class and eventually achieved an ideal grade. Now I'm studying at my dream university, and I would not have done that without his help.

In my opinion, the biggest strength that Pivot Medical Programme provides, and what distinguishes it from other programmes that support aspiring medical students, is the “whole-package” style, individualised support to the applicant. Applicants are followed through from their GCSEs, through A-levels, up until they get into medical school, so mentors have a full understanding of the applicant’s profile from academics, motivation, work experience, UCAT, BMAT, etc. and can therefore provide the right kind of support and guidance at the appropriate times as needed or as requested (e.g. when decisions have to be made on subject choice, or when deciding whether to take the UCAT/ BMAT or both). This also proves to be especially helpful in personal statement writing and university selection, as the mentors’ holistic understanding of the applicant allows them to provide better guidance when working with them on their personal statement; as well as choosing the right university to apply to, as all the strengths and weaknesses of the applicant’s profile are taken into account. For interview preparation, practice sessions are available on-request, which is extremely helpful as medical school interviews come closer, and the experienced mentors are able to provide realistic mock-interviews, as well as invaluable advice like “red-flag” mistakes to avoid and points to work on.

I've been learning from Serene through my IGCSE and IB years, and I'm so grateful for her guidance!
