Prioritising Thoughts

Looking back at Gina's feedback.

In the video, Gina mentions lots of things that she could write about.

However, this doesn’t mean that Gina should write about all of these ideas, because they won’t all be useful for what she’s trying to do.

Instead, Gina is going to need to select the ideas that are most likely to persuade the university to give her a place. One way she could do this is to ask herself questions.

Thinking about what Gina said:

  • What which? key points make Gina stand out?
  • Which subject do you think Gina should apply for, given how she is talking about each of the subjects she is currently studying?
  • Why have you picked out these particular points?
