On Behalf of Everyone at Norton House, We Would Like to Congratulate Our Students Who Received Offers From Top Universities!
As a student of French International School, Reo participated in the Junior Writer’s Awards (JWA) in 2014, organized by Norton House and the South China Morning Post, as well as being supported by the British Council, Eslite, and the DSSSC. Beating out 1,100 competitors, Reo won the championship and became a Norton House student, where his Admission Coaching & Advisory were fully sponsored by Norton House. However, after seeking consultation from our Oxbridge advisers, Reo eventually made the decision to apply to read Natural Sciences at Cambridge University.
Under caring assistance in personal statement enhancement and interview training, Reo successfully received an offer with a requirement of obtaining full scores for his HL IB subjects. Despite his best efforts, Reo unfortunately missed the requirement by only one point. Notwithstanding that the conditional offer was not met, Norton House’s admission coaches and Reo did not cease to work on seeking acceptance from Cambridge. After rounds of negotiation, a month’s deliberation and waiting, Reo regained admission to Cambridge through Norton House’s support. Now, Reo has settled in at Cambridge and will return to Norton House this Christmas to share his experiences with our student community.
The first encounter with Venice and Norton House was at the Junior Writers Awards Prize Ceremony which was co-hosted by Norton House and the SCMP. She was a student of Maryknoll Convent School, and was always encouraged to explore her potential and develop a sense of self-motivation. During her fifth form, she decided to take a brave step to study law and apply to Oxford University. The support she received from Norton House, Venice claimed, "was phenomenal."
Venice was initially having difficulty with her LNAT examination and jumped at the chance to receive LNAT training at Norton House to better equip herself for university admissions. Her score was accelerated and she eventually passed her LNAT exams. The LNAT training at Norton House focused Venice on practical training with past papers, examination techniques, and interview preparation. Our trainers and tutors, being graduates from Oxbridge and other top universities around the world, were able to use their expertise and personal experience to help Venice became familiar with the interview process, as well as instilling full confidence within herself.
Venice ultimately received an offer from Oxford and began her university journey and has been enjoying college life since October 2015.

Before starting the Admission Coaching and Advisory Scheme at Norton House, I did not know where to start on applications to any country. But my coach, Vickie, was a great help. She told me the deadlines for each part of the application (i.e. when I had to start preparing the SATs, LNAT, and personal statement).
Admitted to Global Business, Chinese University of Hong Kong
Before coming to Norton House, I was truly anxious and worried under the new HKDSE system, not knowing what the future may hold. I was fortunate to have my mentor at Norton House, who has meticulously and professionally guided me through this most important transition of my academic life, the process includes expert insights on the HK and UK university systems, subjects and university choices, comparison between study life in the UK and HK, and etc. The training process here has been of personal enlightenment to me, which made me understand my personal strengths and weaknesses more. My most vivid experience at Norton House is that my mentor paid attention to literally every single detail of my admission process, in particular my personal statement, which my mentor and I had to revise till midnight on several occasions. Had there been no input by my mentor, my personal statement would not have achieved such quality. That is why I keep recommending Norton House’s programmes to other students who wish to succeed.
