Young Applicants in Schools Scheme (YASS): University applications

Students from St Matthew's Academy in Saltcoats, Lochaber High School and Grangemouth High School share their thoughts on taking part in YASS:   

The module has given me an insight into the subject area and I think I will look like a more enthusiastic applicant when it comes to university admission applications as I have taken time to study a relevant subject on top of school work.

I think it gives a good insight into uni studies and also makes you get used to working online and by yourself without any guidance from teachers.

I can now follow a schedule and am better with time management, I have to be prepared and work on my own without help. I have to be able to keep up with the course work and because of this I have also found my reading and note taking skills have got better.

It’s not something everybody can do and it’s a real achievement when you pass. It also means that I have experience of university level learning and experience of working by myself without help on-hand like in school.

I have learned to organise my own learning, I need to work out for myself when and how best to study and organise my time.
