"My daughter enjoyed working with Frazier. She was new to academic study of the subject but she found his approach engaging and he was able to motivate her to cover the necessary ground in a short period of time despite her organisational difficulties. He was very responsive to feedback, responding well to changes in the detail of original brief. His objective was to prepare her for an Oxbridge interview and she was subsequently offered a place, so we can thoroughly recommend him."Mother of successful Cambridge Psychology applicant
"I can’t thank you enough for all of your support and guidance, it was most definitely the distinguishing factor that helped me to get an offer. All of your advice and tips for the HAA, for the interview and approaching History in general were so useful and much more specific and practical than what I was being told at school. I truly could not have done it without you. Your teaching methods and advice work!"Successful Cambridge applicant
Guide to the PBSAA
What is the PBSAA? PBSAA stands for the Psychological and Behavioural Sciences Admissions Assessment.It is a Cambridge College registered assessment that was introduced by Cambridge University in recent years, in order to help them test some of the core skills necessary to thrive there. It is designed to be challenging, so that it can help them determine who should be invited to interview. Therefore it is an integral part of the application process.
Psychology Super Curricular Activities
What are super curricular activities? Every student that applies to university will know something about psychology. They may have seen a true crime documentary about a serial killer, read an article about attachment styles, or even studied the subject at GCSE or A-level. But in order to convince universities to give you an offer for undergraduate study, you will need to go above and beyond this level, exploring the subject to a greater extent.
