University and subject choices key factors in students’ future earnings

A recent study has confirmed that the choice of university and study subject, as well as family background, have the most significant impact on students’ earnings a few years after they finish their studies. Furthermore, every A at A-level added a 3% premium on earnings.

While some differences in earnings can be explained by students’ achievements and backgrounds, the most apparent differences are due to the chosen subject. Medicine, Economics and Mathematics graduates have had the highest average earnings five years after graduation.

Educational Q&A videos with Vivek Gathani

After our lessons, tutors will often spend time speaking to parents about their children’s education, support in preparation for their exams, advice about applying to different schools and other topics. This inspired the idea to offer education Q&A videos, and share our tutors’ answers with a larger audience.

In 21 days, on the 6th of July, we will be starting a series of educational Q&A videos with our lead tutor Vivek Gathani. He will be answering such questions as:
How can we help a child choose the right A-levels?
How early is too early to start 11+ preparation?
How should a student prepare a UCAS application?
How can a student write a fitting personal statement?
What is the key change in the new and confusing GCSE (9-1) grading system?

In each video, Vivek will be answering students’ and parents’ questions received on our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

To get notified when the videos are published, please like our Facebook page!

What other questions would you like to hear answered in the upcoming videos? Please comment underneath this post or via the channels above.

Many Y5 students will spend the upcoming weeks preparing for their 11+ entrance examinations in September 2018 and January 2019, and we would like to offer all the advice and support we can to help them get ready for secondary school entrance.

We are therefore delighted to offer a FREE 11+ entrance English mock paper to help students in their revision. The mock paper is written by Milda Sabunaite, a full-time English tutor with over five years of experience in private tutoring who is closely familiar with the entrance requirements to grammar and independent schools in North London.

The mock paper is modelled on 11+ entrance papers to top independent schools in the area.

How do we get children to enjoy mathematics?

Today, we would like to share with you a fascinating discussion between two Cambridge mathematicians about why so often children who thoroughly enjoy exploring mathematics at a young age often lose this fascination as they go through school and in later life.
