UCAS 2020 Entry

Welcome to UCAS

Apply for 2020 Entry for LGGS Leavers

Even though you have now completed your education at LGGS we can still act as your referee and offer you support through your application.

The following guidance will take you through the sequence of steps needed to complete a strong, and most importantly, accurate UCAS application. Please follow the guidance below carefully.

  1. Email Mrs Stables at j.stables@lggs.lancs.sch.uk who will reply to you with useful resource and guidance packs to help you complete the application form. She will also send you the buzzword for your UCAS application. As a school leaver you can now, of course, email from your personal email account.

  2. Start your UCAS form by registering as a student at LGGS. This will allow us to see your application form electronically which in turn affords you clearer support. You should register when prompted under the category ‘returning student’ and use the buzzword when asked to. Take a careful note of your UCAS unique identification code, passwords and identifying questions.

  3. The guidance pack that Mrs Stables sends you in her email will enable you to complete the form accurately. The UCAS helpline is also very useful for more complex queries. When speaking to UCAS they will need to identify you through your codes and identifying questions; always keep these safe.

  4. Your biggest task will be the Personal Statement. There is clear guidance for this in the guidance pack Mrs Stables has sent you. It should be 4000 characters with spaces and no longer than 47 lines. Follow the guidance to achieve your first draft.

  5. When you have completed your first draft, using the guidance to structure the statement correctly email it to Miss Allen who will edit the statement electronically. Miss Allen’s email is k.allen@lggs.lancs.sch.uk

    YOUR DEADLINE FOR SENDING THE PERSONAL STATEMENT TO MISS ALLEN IS MID AUGUST IF YOU ARE AN EARLY APPLICANT.

  6. Once you are happy with the Personal Statement edits and have completed the application form, email Miss Allen to let her know you are absolutely ready. Include in the email a list of what you are doing in your Gap Year so that the reference can be completed accurately. Do not pay for or send your application form yet.

  7. Miss Allen will then complete your reference.

  8. Miss Allen will then email you to check your availability for a phone call so that we can read you the reference. At this point you will be asked to make any necessary corrections to your application form and send it off.

  9. Mrs Cahalin will then check and approve the reference. Points 8 and 9 may take several days depending on our teaching and school commitments. Please ensure you take this into consideration with your timings for making the application.

  10. As long as you have sent the application form through we will then attach the reference and send the completed application to UCAS.

    If you are expected to sit entrance exams for your chosen course and university it is your responsibility to check the location of these tests and the due date. Exams that can be sat at LGGS as a centre require you to register with us and complete an application form.

    Please ensure you discuss this with Miss Allen in your emails. Other exams involve you registering with a computerised testing centre, often a driving test centre. The final group of exams are those that will take place at the university during the interview process. It is your responsibility to take careful note of this and email Miss Allen with your requirements.
