HOW TO PREPARE A PORTFOLIO FOR UNIVERSITY APPLICATIONS


If you've chosen to apply for an Art subject at university, you might have to submit a portfolio.

It's a great opportunity to share the topics you studied and explain why you're interested in them.

In this article, I am referring mainly to creating a digital portfolio. However, you could apply these same principles to making a physical portfolio as well.

HAS CHRISTMAS CHANGED?



I was younger I remember having so much fun playing with my toys that I couldn't grasp the concept of growing up and not wanting to play with them again. Inevitably, I did.

Part of the reason this subject is described with these words is probably the fact that History is a subject that can easily dishearten the student who studies it. Unlike science (thinking of Maths or Chemistry), subjects like History don't have questions that come with an answer that is either right or wrong.

To make some of this confusion clearer, I have written 4 ways that have proven useful to me when I was studying and will help you succeed with A Level History.
