University Applications



Dipont, when employing me in Nanjing, asked me to put together a course for Oxbridge hopefuls. I persuaded Jess Farr-Cox to come contribute her more current experience and the resulting pattern still forms the basis of the course she now runs for a week each year. The content shown on this page is a distillation of much of what has been said many many times to sixth formers both in Britain and in China. I was a tutor for 30 years, a sixth form specialist for more like 20, a house master for a little under 15 and a Head for around 5. None of that means that what I write should displace your own research, but it might encourage you to do more.


Jess blogs on China, in much the way I do in Essays

Jess writes about UCAS advice too.
