• Studied: A-Levels
I achieved A, B, B and am now progressing to the University Centre at Blackburn College

I came to Blackburn College because I attended an event and was really impressed by the variety of different courses on offer here. The financial support available – including the scholarships – was important to me during the decision making process. I was also really impressed by the teachers’ knowledge on the subjects I wanted to study.

I was very nervous about opening my results, but am so happy I achieved an A in History, B in Religious Studies and a B in English Literature! I now have the grades to progress to my university of choice.

I’ve really enjoyed many aspects of my A-Levels, but also the way in which they were taught. The teaching style at Blackburn College is really enjoyable and made learning fun.

The College has also provided a lot of advice on employability, especially in my one-to-one tutorials.

Since starting, my confidence has definitely improved. I slowly began to participate more in class and the way the tutors teach at Blackburn College meant that I was never afraid of putting my hand up if I was stuck on something during a lesson.

Along with my classmates, I participated in activities such as class debates and apprentice week, where my peers and I had to work together to make a profit on products we sold. Class discussions and presentations also improved my communication skills, which will really come in handy in the future.

I’m now progressing to the University Centre at Blackburn College to study BA (Hons) History and Literary Studies.
