SUCCESS STORIES

Z C Chen Cambridge Law (transparent testimonial)
Z C CHEN

University of Cambridge, Wolfson College, Law

ZC enrolled in QC’s Early Years Mentoring programme when he was 15 years old. Through his sessions with various mentors, he managed to meet key objectives, such as participating in law clerical work at the pro bono meet the MP sessions, volunteering for the Humanitarian Organisation for Migration (HOME), scored best team in the Debate Association Annual Competition, took up job shadowing at Drew and Napier and obtained merit award at the pro bono short essay competition.
Jonathan Oxford PPE (transparent testimonial)

JONATHAN

University of Oxford, Philosophy, Politics, and Economics

The interview preparation was a rigorous process, involving a strong team of consultants that provide incisive opinions and feedback. The sessions were intense and holistic, targeted at improving not only our abilities to communicate our ideas, but the quality of our content as well. The cost of the programme may initially seem like a daunting sum, but the reality is that you honestly get what you pay for and more. The consultants are genuinely high-standard, no-nonsense mentors that are focused entirely on improving their students and helping them achieve their academic aspirations as opposed to trying to make a quick buck. The guidance they offer extend far past university applications and the sheer amount of hours they dedicate towards each student make the programme well worth the cost.
Jiaying Cambridge Econs (transparent testimonial)

JIAYING

University of Cambridge, Economics

The mock Economics Admissions Assessment (ECAA) reviews provided by my mentors at Quintessential greatly assisted in my preparations for the actual test. Not only did it give me a better understanding of how the test will be conducted, the weekly sessions with my mentors also helped me to identify gaps in my preparation, thus allowing me to be more confident and prepared during the test. I believe that Quintessential does a great job in plugging in the learning gaps for students, especially those who are not from top JCs and thus do not have a wide network of alumni who have gone through the application process.
