If you've just joined us on 52 Things To Do, our student guide for applying to university, or if you've been on the journey from the beginning, test your knowledge with our monthly round-up quizzes. This will give you an idea of topics that you're comfortable with and topics that you should revisit.

The first 4 weeks are very much an introduction to the weekly activities and aim to get you thinking about your options. If you're just starting to think about your future, this is a good place to start.


From week 5 we get into the 'meaty' topics including your personal statement. If you have some sort of idea of what you'd like to study you can get a lot of help and guidance from these 4 weeks.

Weeks 9-12 look at subjects that might not leap out to you as important, but they will definitely be useful when the time comes. As an example, week 10 is all about how you will pay for university. This may sound daunting but there's plenty of guidance available.

These weeks are full of vital information (excluding Christmas). Firstly, week 13 covers the UCAS key dates which you need to be aware of. We then cover portfolios and interviews which may not be relevant to everyone applying to university. However, the information can be used in preperation of a job interview, which will apply to everyone at some point.
