Myth Of Brand

The name of the A Level institution has no bearing on the candidate’s chances of getting admission or financial aid to universities in the US. What matters is the candidate’s accomplishments, both academic and extracurricular and their ability to convey that in their application.There is plenty of research to support this claim. Universities confirm that as long as the A level school offers a globally recognized curriculum like the CIE, the years of existence of the institution make no difference – the brand of the institution makes no difference. One of the officers went so far as to say, “Whether the school is 1 month old or 100 years old – it does not matter”. At Harvard, for instance, home schooled students (i.e. private candidates) are not at a disadvantage relative to those who attended a prestigious private high school. A Level candidates are encouraged to do the due diligence and directly contact their universities of interest. Ask them about the factors that are considered in the assessment of applications to their university. You have an obligation to yourself and to your parents to be a well informed consumer.
