This week is best suited to students who have already applied to university (e.g. you are in Y13 or Level 3 Y2). If you have not yet applied to university, you may find Week 4 on Persuasive Writing more useful.

Please note that if you would like to receive a certificate to confirm completion of this course, then you will need to complete all of the weeks.
