So what should you be concerned about? :
** Your Achievements, Academic and otherwise. We will need proof that you are an achiever.

** Your potential. We pride ourselves on judging potential as much as performance. It isn’t just what you have already achieved; it’s what we can help you achieve in the future.

** The suitability of your course, project or programme. You must persuade us that the course/ programme is right for you and that you are right for it.
