Our Upper Sixth students have received an impressive range of offers from UK, US, European and international universities.

A total of 77 offers have been made to 35 students from 33 prestigious American and Canadian institutions. Students have received nine offers from McGill, nine from the University of California Los Angeles, and six from New York University. The University of Chicago, Northeastern University, Georgetown and Columbia have all have made four offers. Cornell, Duke and Boston have made three offers, while Yale, University of Pennsylvania, Babson College, University of Southern California, and University of Michigan have made two offers.

We have seen a significant increase in the Columbia and Cornell offer rate this year. Columbia, which has an admittance rate of 7.4%, offered to 25% of Sevenoaks applicants. For Cornell, the figures were 15% and 30% respectively. Our Georgetown offer rate has seen a steady increase too, rising from 20% to 66% over the last three years.

We are also delighted that one of our students was successful in his application to the highly competitive Dual BA Program at SciencesPo and Columbia and another accepted for the SciencesPo and Keio Dual Program.

Two of our students have been awarded Scholarships: one at The Parsons School of Design, New York and one, the John Jay Scholarship at Columbia.

Applicants to UK universities have been successful in 75% of their applications to some of the most competitive institutions including UCL, LSE, Imperial, Durham, Oxford and Cambridge. We also have 100% offer rate at York, Surrey, Sheffield, Cardiff and SOAS, 98% offer rate at Warwick, 95% at Bath, 94% at Birmingham, 93% at Exeter, 92% at KCL and 87% at Durham.

In total, 14 students have offers for Medicine, and between them, they hold 25 offers at a range of Medical Schools including seven offers at UCL, five offers at Exeter and others including Newcastle, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Southampton, Edinburgh, Bristol, KCL and Birmingham, and three offers at Chinese University of Hong Kong. 76% of our students who applied for Medicine achieved at least one offer; a very high offer rate given the exceptionally high level of competition for places.

Many congratulations go to all of our students who have achieved an exceptional level of success with their university offers.
