If you are going to go to all the time, trouble, and expense of getting a degree, it makes sense to make sure that you end up with a good one. A degree from a respected university will open all kinds of doors for you. Whereas, sadly, one from a lesser-known university is not likely to get you as far. Below, I briefly share how to boost your chances of being accepted by one of the better universities.
Write a Standout Personal Statement
To be accepted by a good university you have to produce an exceptional personal statement. It needs to be flawlessly written and use the kind of language that will appeal specifically to the person considering your application. The best way to achieve this is to follow a decent guide, write your statement, then let a firm like Scribbr hone it for you. They will make sure that it flows well, and that the language used sets the right tone. As well as, of course, making sure there are no spelling or grammar errors.
Fill Out the Application in Full
Don’t ever skip over part of the application process. If you are asked for 3 recommendations, make sure that it is 3 that you provide.
No learning institution wants to take on students who are not willing, or worse, are unable to, follow basic instructions. Plus, if you leave things out, there is a chance that they will conclude that you are hiding something. In which case, there is a strong chance that your application will fail.
Round Out your Academic Profile
Regardless of where you are based in the world, you must do well in all of your exams and tests. For the best universities, the fact that you have simply passed is just not enough. You have to be in the top percentile. So, throughout your schooling study hard and test well. If you are struggling at any point, get a tutor. They will show you how to achieve the grades you will need later in your educational journey.
Become an Active Member of your Community
Universities and colleges value students who are prepared to help others. They know that it is a sign of good character and that people who volunteer are typically well organized and capable. People who have strong connections with their community generally adapt well to student life and are not afraid of hard work.
Write About your Subject and Publish your Work
Universities like students who are passionate about the subjects that they are planning to study. If you already have some knowledge of it find ways to share what you know. Set up a basic website and write about it, post podcasts or make some simple videos.
