Future 'Prep' (Preparation) Discussion Room

Student Council with the help of Ms Rachel, organised a sharing session where we invited Ex-Students of Sri Garden International to give an account of their experiences having undergone the IGCSEs and their A Levels. The students from a number of Universities have undertaken various undergraduate courses in Medicine, Actuarial Science, Business Management, Finance, Management of Information Systems, Business Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Psychology and Biomedical Science. They hail from institutions such as the University of St Andrews , the University of Cardiff, the University of Bristol, HELP University, Boston University, the University of Greenwich and London School of Economics. It was greatly informative as students from Year 9 to Year 11 were able to obtain first hand information about the relevant subjects to focus on and the details pertaining to entry into foreign and local universities. They were given insights on study skills, how to tackle A-Levels and prepare for the American Degree Programme. We hope to repeat this event in the near future for those who missed out on it.
