Extra tasks boost students.

SIXTH formers at Bablake School volunteered for extra work when they took on a new extended project qualification alongside their A-levels.

Pupils at the selective fee paying school in Radford Road, Coundon, Coventry, opted for the extra work, which involved writing a long essay and giving a talk.

The new qualification is meant to help pupils impress university admissions tutors.

Nadine Naguib, 18 and Jonathan Smith, 17, both won places at Oxford while the others have been offered places at universities including Bath, Bristol and Nottingham.

Deputy head of sixth form Alison Tumber said: "Students have been stretching themselves by undertaking an extended project qualification in addition to their A-level studies.

"Projects ranging from Euclidean mathematics to the Chinese economy have been submitted by the AQA examinations board. Students have very much benefited from the experience."
