- Studied: A-Levels
I achieved A*, A*, A, A and am progressing to Lancaster University.
I chose Blackburn College because of the wide selection of A-Levels on offer. I also came to the taster days and found them entertaining and informative. I was also fortunate enough to receive one of the fantastic academic scholarships the College had on offer, which helped to support my studies.
I achieved an A* in Maths, A* in EPQ (Extended Project Qualification), A in Physics and an A in Chemistry – which is amazing! I’m so excited about going to university and so relieved to finally have my results.
My tutors at Blackburn College have been really supportive throughout my time here, especially during exam preparation. I’ve also been fortunate to have been surrounded with people with similar interests, which really made my College experience a positive one.
The College has prepared me for my future career in many ways, such as enabling me to take part in the Villiers Park Scholars Programme – which really helped to develop my skillset and furthered my confidence, as I had to learn how to conduct presentations in front of an audience.
I was also provided with the opportunity to do an Extended Project where I conducted extensive research into Aspirin, where I looked into its origins and historical use. I found it really fascinating and am really happy the project got an A*.
I’m now progressing to Lancaster University where I will study a BSc (Hons) in Natural Sciences.
