A Deeper Exploration of your subject interests can help:

  • Confirm whether this is (or isn't) something you would be interested in enough to want to study it at university either as the focus of your degree or a minor/elective

  • Give you some inspiration to use when creating your questions and topics for IA's (coursework) and your Extended Essay

  • Provide you with content for your university application writing in the future, enabling you to reflect on the things you've been doing to explore your interests in a way that is academically relevant to the course or institution you are applying for.

Recording What You DO and THINK

Doing lots of deeper exploration is great, but you will do most of it months (if not years) before you are sitting and writing your university applications. 

By Recording Your Reflections as you go you:

  • Think more critically about how interesting the topic really is

  • Practice writing reflectively

  • Build up a bank of evidence and reflections to use when you do start writing your university applications

We ask students at St. Clare's to keep Subject Exploration Logs for this - get more help with this on the button below
