University Event


Year 11 Achieve Conference

University event offered by University of Birmingham

Event Summary:

With the changes in the post-16 curriculum, it has become increasingly important for Year 11 students to demonstrate their academic potential with their GCSE results.

Full Event Details:

With this in mind, the University of Birmingham is organising an event that concentrates on getting students who will be sitting their GCSEs in 2017 to start thinking about the importance that the next nine months will play in determining their future aspirations.

The Achieve Conference will focus on getting students to learn about the importance of their GCSE qualifications, what Russell Group universities look for and what sixth forms and colleges expect from pre-16 students. The messages from the day are deliberately designed to make students aware that Year 11 is a time that they need to focus their efforts and minds in order to achieve their target grades, if not to exceed them. We are encouraging schools to target those students that have the academic potential to aim for a Russell Group university and those that have the academic ability but lack the motivation.

Suitable For:

Bookings by Teachers for Key Stage 4 (Students aged 14-16)

Institution Profile:

Birmingham has been challenging and developing great minds for more than a century. Characterised by a tradition of innovation, research at the University has broken new ground, pushed forward the boundaries of knowledge and made an impact on people’s lives.

We continue this tradition today and have ambitions for a future that will embed our work and recognition of the Birmingham name on the international stage.

Universities are never complete. They develop as new challenges and opportunities occur. At Birmingham we innovate, we push the frontiers of understanding; we ask new research questions, we turn theory through experiment into practice – because that’s what great universities do.
