Applying to enter top, competitive universities requires a lot of preparation beyond exams and extracurriculars. PrepWorks provides comprehensive support that covers all aspects of a top university admission from selecting the best university for you to covering topics in entrance exams. While most admissions services may have a university counsellor for several students, we have several experts for one student. Students get to learn from experts who have gone through the admissions process themselves, gaining first-hand experience and knowledge.

Benefits

Students get to

  • Receive individualised 1-on-1 help that is focused on their own gaps and goals
  • Boost their chances of getting in by up to 4 or 5 times
  • Have an early head start to their university admissions
  • Identify what course to pursue based on their interest and strengths
  • Select the best university for them based on their needs
  • Review and work on their personal statement to portray themselves in the best light
  • Go through university-specific examinations or entrance examinations needed for their entry, including BMAT, UCAT, LNAT, PAT, MAT, TSA, ECAA or STEP
  • Train and prepare for admissions interviews with actual interview questions with tutors who have gone through the same process
University Admissions
Students can learn about the universities or colleges they are interested in applying to, such as their requirements and difference with other institutions. They get in-depth insight on topics they will learn and find the most suitable institution for them. We will also work with students to come up with customised strategies to increase their chances of entry.
Personal statements and admissions essays help admissions officers know the student. Students often find writing the ‘right essay’ to be a challenge, especially when guides available online are not tailored to their individual circumstances or institution they are applying to. Our tutors will work with the students to give feedback on how to improve their essay piece by piece, whether they are applying for one institution or more.
Entrance examinations are common in top universities and colleges, and often cover a bit more than what students have learnt in their pre-university studies. We have course-specific tutors available who will go through sample and past questions with the student to help them familiarise themselves with answering challenging questions. Get tips and strategies on how to do well and improve upon weaker topics with the guidance of experts of the subject.
Interviews can be the most stressful part of any student’s admissions. Interviewees are expected to process highly-academic questions and articulate their thoughts clearly to showcase their best traits and intelligence. We will touch on all aspects of acing the interview from building basic interview skills and answering questions students are likely to encounter based on their selected course. Students will get to practice through mock interviews, receive feedback and coaching.

Key skills PrepWorks want to focus on are not just vital for getting into the best universities, but also to succeed in life. There is a distinct lack of focus on skills such as communication skills, critical thinking and reading in schools. Students end up having trouble when it comes to interviews or presentations, only to develop them later in university through soft skill classes or attending workshops. These skills can actually be established in a child as young as 7, through encouragement and fun activities. PrepWorks hosts enrichment workshops and classes with this in mind during holidays to help build those prepare students for the challenges ahead.

Benefits

Students get to

  • Pick up new skills that are not taught in the classroom
  • Build confidence in their own abilities
  • Develop specific skills through carefully designed courses and classes
