Rasim started his studies in the UK aged 9. Rasim is the only child in his family and the decision to send him to England was not easy, as his family had not considered relocation and did not have any extended family members or friends in the UK. Rasim’s parents’ wish to give their child a good international education and teach him healthy moral values was crucial to their decision to send him to Kingswood school in the picturesque town of Bath.
Rasim started his studies in the UK with a very limited proficiency in English. He has come far in the past three years – he is fluent in English, copes easily with his school curriculum, plays various sports and has many local friends.
Despite all the many positive things about Kingswood, Rasim’s parents have always been looking for opportunities to give their son a stronger and more intensive preparation in the sciences and, as a result, a higher chance of subsequently getting into Oxbridge or LSE.
Rasim’s family made a decision to apply to the top schools in the country, including Westminster School, Sevenoaks School, Brighton College and Concord College, at 13+. Rasim chose Concord, which he got an offer from after two stages of challenging tests and interview.
Concord College is famous for its high academic results – every year around 70% of its students get offers to read medicine, economics or engineering at Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, Imperial College London, UCL or King’s College, London.
