Hello, today I will listing my 10 favourite articles from the Aces Aspire website. They aren’t in any particular order I just highly enjoyed reading them for reasons I will list below.
I found it interesting to read about Cambridge university from an outsiders perspective. For one, we know that Cambridge is among the top universities and someone would have to achieve very high grades to get in.
The way this article was written was great too, it is easy to understand and follow for those who may be interested in going there in the future.
An article like this is very important. It goes into a deep dive about how stereotypes can lead to prejudice, how everyone is stereotyped just because of their age, how they look or speak.
I also like how the article started with a strong narration about others discriminating against someone just because of their ethnicity. It gives the reader an example of stereotyping.
This article is a short but sweet compilation by children describing their Mum’s chocolate cake. Creating mini stories from one item can be difficult but Nasara, Okhare, Carrie and Hope completed this task very well.
I do love a good film review, and this one specifically is very well written. The author being the same person who wrote “What we see when we look at other people” has written a very detailed analysis on their thoughts of the movie “Tower”.
The movie being about a horrible mass shooting on a university campus in Texas, with individual stories stitched together. At the end all the survivors sit down and tell everyone their experiences. A dark event that sheds light on mass shootings and shows human bravery throughout the film.
Guides and informative posts are always useful and “A guide to studying abroad” can help those who are unsure about what they want to do. As this article points out, the positives highly outweigh the negatives. The positives being experiencing another culture and learning a new language. The writer even gives their own opinion to help one finalise their decision.
Apart from Guides, E.Omitogun has written a very interesting article looking into the media industry and working with 20th Century Fox (the film company).
They explain how the If Ideas Foundation helps young people get a taste of jobs in different industries. This article doesn’t only give an insight on the film and the media industry, but it also encourages young people to reach out to organisations like If Ideas Foundation to help them get work experience and even help them decide what they want to do.
As someone who picked GCSE Art, a review about coloured pencils may help me get better ones then i already own.
Laurelle explains everything about the pencils from how well they blend to how good they look on paper. This article could help those looking for some good art products.
Have you ever wanted to go somewhere new for food or coffee and don’t know where to go? This could be the article for you!
This article talks about different types of food spots in detail and encourages people to try new things and promotes variety.
As the author states, boarding schools are painted badly by the media and most notably, tv shows that push boarding schools as horrid and scary. Well Eduwa Ekhator paints a different perspective on it.
Eduwa states how education is stronger than ever as students are always there, so they can get better help and more time for studying. Plus, it’s easier to make friends as you spend a lot of time with them.
As a person who hasn’t been in Aces for too long, an article like this could help newcomers or people struggling with writing to see how Aces can help.
Vanessa states on how she’s just starting her GCSE courses and how Aces encouraged her to improve overall including writing. Aces positive influence made Vanessa not only a better writer which helps her GCSE, but she also started her very own business!
