Steps to using UCAS Progress.

Step 1.

Create an account on this page: www.ucasprogress.com/account/pickaschool. Enter your current School here. If you cannot find it, you may need to enter a variation of your School’s name. Otherwise, select ‘I cannot find my School’ and continue with your account registration.

Step 2.

Once you have created an account, log in, and use this link to find and select A Level courses at the University of Birmingham School, and add them to your ‘Favourites’.

You should select three A Level courses, unless you wish to study Further Mathematics, which you can study as a fourth subject.

Step 3.

Click on the ‘Profile’ tab at the top. Fill in all of your profile details, ensuring you save each section. You will need to include all of the qualifications you are currently studying for, and your predicted grades from your school. This profile will be used in all post-16 applications you make via UCAS Progress.

NB: You do not have to write a Personal Statement or fill in Work History for your application to UoBSchool Sixth Form. These sections will not be considered as part of your application.

Step 4.

Once you have completed all sections in your profile, click on the ‘Applications’ tab. Start a new application, select the courses you want to study, and fill in any remaining questions (eg medical information).

Ensure all of your profile details are complete (check ‘Summary’ on the ‘Profiles’ tab if you are unsure).

Step 5.

Submit your application.

UCAS Progress will send you an email to let you know if your application is being processed. Please ensure you check your messages on UCAS Progress on a regular basis.

Purposefully designed with your
