Students' Successful Pathways to Oxbridge

From Local School to Benenden to Oxford

By A.H.

I have started attending ARCH since 2011. Started off participating in ARCH’s Socrates and its creative writing programme, ARCH has already distinguished itself from any other tutorial centres with its interactive and rewarding learning experience that I’ve got.
I then successfully applied to Benenden School, a top UK girls boarding school, with a scholarship through ARCH. And I’m proud to say that ARCH’s support to my academic life didn’t stop there – ARCH also helped me make my Oxford dream into reality. My experience at ARCH can be summed up with three words - ‘Understanding, Attentive, Comprehensive’. To me, ARCH is way more than just an educational institute, it is a place where my academic interests are sparked, a place that witnessed and assisted my transformation throughout my academic journey. After spending more than 6 years attending ARCH’s lessons, I am confident in saying that every single teacher put every student’s interest to heart.

How I Got into Cambridge Law

By K.W.

Back in 2011 when I was Form 3, I first participated in ARCH’s Socrates program. Socrates classes have taught me how to think out of the box and gave me a diverse perspective of the world which conventional education lacks.
I also joined ARCH’s debate and mock trial classes which gave me fundamental techniques and more importantly immense confidence when I later represented my school in inter-school competitions. In the following summer, ARCH gave me the opportunity to join a Law Summer Program at Oxford which further sparked my academic interest in Law. From interview preparation to aptitude test training, ARCH has identified my strengths and needs and tailor-made programs that best suit me. ARCH’s personal approach also gave me extra confidence and reassurance during my application process and led me to actualize my dream of getting into Cambridge.

ARCH provided all-rounded guidance in every element of the application process.  Both my academic and presentation ability was greatly enhanced through tailor-made sessions, and the intensiveness and effectiveness of all work were impressive. The tutors, Oxbridge alumni or students, truly understood my needs and shared with me their invaluable experiences.  All these made my application a really fruitful process with a successful outcome. I am so grateful that ARCH encouraged me to start this journey and offered the most appropriate support.
