At PrepWorks, we believe that education encompasses pillars beyond academics. With top institutions placing emphasis on character, value, experiences, and an extensive portfolio of non-academic skills when sieving through thousands of applications, standing out from the crowd makes the world of difference.
Applying to enter top institutions and schools for further studies is no longer a simple process in these disruptive times for education. As part of the selection process, admission offices of most organisations leverage tools, such as character-focused essay questions, for the consistent assessment of positive character attributes. Schools today look beyond good grades and test scores as they move towards a more holistic admission. The various dimensions of character schools look for include:
For students to accomplish what they care about, their character is key. As such, test scores and GPA are only one of the many factors being accounted for. Students who also possess traits that align with the schools’ mission are seen as potential contributors to the rich school community, increasing their chances of admission.

However, our educators take on innovative approaches, tapping on students’ passion points to elevate their intrinsic motivation.
During our character development lessons, students get to:
