From memory (it's been a while!) the covering letter in applications is very important and can help swing things. Often it's overlooked though and rushed last minute. So I would say that - alongside the usual stuff of motivating them with studies and giving them a cuddle when it all gets too much and they have pre-exam nerves - one of the best things you can do is help them to really think about who they are, what they have to offer, what makes them unique and why they want to do the course they want to do. And offer to spellcheck and proof it too!

FWIW I think there's a limit to how much you should do. This should be their dream, and if they need too much pushing and shoving, maybe it's not the right route for them.

I wish your child to reach the University you both dream of.

But why don't you start considering also late high quality MOOCs ? I am attending one myself and have found it excellent so far. It's from MIT.

You could make a quick search about: edX, udacity, P2PU, coursera etc. just to wet your appetite.
