Supporting Schools to Get the Edge
Our team of subject specialist Mentors have put together a free personalised Report tool, designed to help 15-18 year olds from around the world maximise their chances of university success.
Students fill in a short form (taking around 5 minutes), asking them questions including the subject they want to study at university, the topics they are interested in and the amount of preparation they have done so far.
We then send them a free 30 page Report, written by a subject-specialist, tailored to their subject interests and academic level (see here for an example Report).
The Report is packed with personalised book/article/film/podcast recommendations, as well as benchmarking data so they can see how they compare to other students.
Students who fill in the Report become:
- Clearer about what they need to do to achieve their goal of getting into their target university and subject
- More motivated to start their preparations earlier
- More confident about their chances of future success
Economics & Business
International Relations & Politics
As educators, we know the challenge of helping students to prepare for increasingly competitive university applications. We created the Report to help schools with this task.

We can also provide you and your school with a free tailored School Progress Report, summarising your students’ answers, so that you can focus your university preparation guidance on the areas students struggle with most. You’ll also be able to discover how your students compare to other students from around the world.
It could easily be administered to whole year groups as a great way of providing tailored support to every student, and helping them to put together a university application that will stand out.

Core Student Metrics
We Analyse and Help to Improve
Based on our experience supporting thousands of students, we’ve identified seven core metrics that set successful candidates apart. From “reading around a subject” to how comfortable students feel discussing the latest news about their subject with others, these metrics are crucial to university success.
Our Report measures a student’s current levels and shows them how they compare to other students. It gives them tailored, subject-specific advice to help them to improve and increase their chances of getting into their dream university.

Free University Preparation Tool from the Oxford Scholastica Academy
One of our students is attending an academic programme with the Oxford Scholastica Academy shortly.
They offer programmes and tools designed to maximise pupils’ chances of future success, and their team of academics have developed a free tool for students aged 15-18 who would like guidance on how to maximise their chances of getting into their top-choice university.
To access your free personalised Report, go to https://www.oxfordscholastica.com/report/ and fill in a short 5 minute questionnaire. Your Report will include:
• Tailored book, podcast and video recommendations for you, based on your interests and academic level, to help you read around the curriculum
• Data to let you know where you stand compared with other applicants
• Advice and recommendations for how to improve your university application and set yourself up for success
The Report will give you the edge in your university applications, and it’s completely free. Here’s the link: https://www.oxfordscholastica.com/report/.
What is the Report?
It’s a free Report that will help your students to prepare for a successful academic future, regardless of their current stage.
Written by a subject expert, tailored to each student, the Report will analyse their strengths and weaknesses and give them practical advice on how to improve. It’ll also show them how they compare to other students.
The Report covers all the key areas university admissions officers are looking for, and suggests books, articles and podcasts to help them read around the subject. It also includes advice on finding work experience, increasing confidence, and keeping up with the latest news in the subject.
Who is it for - and what subjects does it cover?
The Report is for students aged 15-18 who are keen to accelerate their learning in their chosen subject(s). It is designed to help young people prepare effectively for university applications – whichever universities they’re aiming for.
Our Reports cover the following subjects:
- Economics & Business
- International Relations & Politics
How does it work?
Students click here to fill in the Report (it takes around 5 minutes). They will be asked a series of around 20 questions to help us to understand more about them and their interests – from the subject they want to study to the way they learn best.
Our team will then review the answers, and within 24-48 hours we’ll send them a personalised Report tailored to them, written by our subject-expert Mentor.
Students will also have the opportunity to receive subject-specific emails from the Mentor, all designed to continue to stretch them and develop their knowledge of the subject. In other words, our free support doesn’t stop when they receive the Report!
Why is Oxford Scholastica offering a free Report?
We are passionate about giving students the edge to help them succeed, find their purpose, and make a difference in the world. We’ve supported over 3,000 students over the past 10 years, and we’ve launched the Report to support even more students.
The Report is free of charge, and while some students who read the Report might like to sign up to our courses and internships, this is completely optional (the Report also includes information on our Scholarship Programme as part of our mission to widen access to students from less advantaged backgrounds – we’re aiming to provide over 10,000 hours of free support over the next 3 years).
First and foremost, we want to support as many people as possible to maximise their chances of future success and fulfil their potential.
Form for Students to Fill In
We’ve included this form for you to see how it works, but please send the students our Report page for them to fill it in, (the current page you are on is aimed at teachers).
