What Students in 11th and 12th Grades Need to Know for Back-to-School

The new school year is right around the corner. Students need to know and understand their priorities, as well as work on them for a successful year. Below are some tips that UCEazy has prepared to help 11th and 12th graders.
11th Graders

  • Based on some early admission deadlines, this is your last academic year to be considered by colleges. Therefore, approach studying with the utmost importance.
  • During this academically challenging year where students are studying diligently for their AP/Honors courses, set time aside to practice for the ACT/SAT.
  • This is a great time for students to further explore and deepen relationships with adults who can support them during the college admission process and beyond.
  • Discover dynamic accomplishment opportunities to put on the high school resume.
  • Look in the past and towards the future to convey a story that is unique, as you prepare for writing college essays.
12th Graders

  • Senior year is about balancing important activities within a timeline. Students need to tap into their network of support, study persistently, and finish strong in activities to convey how they have developed over time.
  • In the Fall, focus on high-quality studying and reviewing for the final attempts of ACT/SAT.
  • Students should work closely with teachers and staff in pursuit of recommendation letters and when crafting personal essays.
  • Students and parents should take a realistic approach to form a college list while keeping potential majors in mind.
