A level results 2019: CATS student achieves place at the University of Cambridge

15 August 2019

Congratulations to CATS Cambridge A level student Yuliia from Ukraine who achieved top A level grades in Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics and has secured a place to read Mathematics at Peterhouse College, one of the 31 colleges of the University of Cambridge.

Recognised as one of the world’s leading universities, the University of Cambridge is ranked the number one university in the UK in the Times & Sunday Times University Rankings 2019 and second in the world in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2019.

Watch Yuliias interview:

Talking about her excitement of receiving an offer from the University of Cambridge, Yuliia says:

“When I found out that I had an offer from Cambridge, I screamed. My mother and father were so happy about it too, and my classmates said, ‘Yes Yuliia, you got it!’”

Yuliia has an undeniable passion for Maths. She chose to read the subject at the University of Cambridge because she wants to discuss the topic with the brightest minds in the world.

“At the University of Cambridge I know I’ll find people who will love Maths as much as me.”

Yuliia goes on to highlight the outstanding support she received from the team at CATS Cambridge:

“I was lucky to have incredibly good teachers. My Maths teachers explained complex stuff simply. They encouraged me to read around the subject. They gave me literature, resources and extension questions to help develop me. One teacher told me stories about studying at the University of Cambridge, as he’d also studied there.”

She adds:

“I got lots of help with the (university) application process. I went to a variety of lectures outside of class on interesting topics from Medicine to Physics and got support preparing my personal statement. I tried lots of activities and completed the Duke of Edinburgh award, which I included in my personal statement.”
