Count on CoPE - Bryony's story

“The road to University is not always smooth and the UCAS points from this ASDAN qualification have made all the difference.”

Bryony (pictured) was in Year 12 when CoPE Level 3 was introduced at St Anne’s School and Sixth Form College. Initially she wasn’t sure CoPE would be for her, as the offers she received were likely to be based on grades, rather than UCAS points. But, after speaking to her Head of Sixth Form, she realised it could help her application if she was competing with other students for a place.

When her four original choices fell through, Bryony had to look for another suitable course: “I found out that Aberystwyth University still had a Law place available and, better still, as their offer was based on UCAS points, it would take my CoPE Level 3 qualification into account.”

Now happily settled into student life at Aberystwyth, she adds:  “I would heartily recommend CoPE Level 3 to any student who has the opportunity to achieve it. The road to university is not always smooth and the UCAS points from this ASDAN qualification have made all the difference in terms of securing a place, not only for myself but also for a good many other students from my sixth-form college.”
