    "CATS was the place I discovered who I was. Where my academic ability, emotional endurance and professional passion were constantly challenged to grow. The international learning environment, the teachers and friends inspired me to become a Science lover, a critical thinker, a socially and culturally aware person and an independent mind. I could not have been more grateful for the mock interviews, the revision sessions, the tutoring classes and the countless hours that my personal tutor spent on perfecting my university applications."

What helped was two of my tutors graduated from Jesus College, they knew what was happening on the inside and gave me great advice on what to expect at my interview."
