How and why did you decide which subjects to study?

I chose the subjects that would help me apply to study Economics at university and French because having a language is useful for work.

How did you find the move from school to College?

I found the move from school to College almost seamless because of the support I received from the staff at College. However, I did find the difficulty level of my subjects jumped enormously from GCSE to A level.

What have you enjoyed/are you enjoying most about your courses?

I love how logical Maths is and how Economics relates to real world issues, whereas French gives me a chance to have a break from Maths!

How have you found the teaching and support staff?

All my teachers have been supportive, helping with any questions I have.  Outside lessons they’re always available through email. The College ensured we felt supported throughout lockdown. In particular, the Economics Department was incredibly helpful in preparing me for my Cambridge interviews.

What are your plans for the future?

I have offers to study Economics from Cambridge and LSE, and plan to hopefully complete a Masters afterwards.
