"I have really enjoyed studying with a diverse range of people and my overall experience has been wonderful."

Luqman studied Blackburn College’s BTEC Science Level 3 Extended Diploma and achieved Distinction*, Distinction* and Distinction (D*, D* and D). He also achieved Grade A in Level 3 Mathematics. Congratulations and good luck, Luqman!

Luqman said: “I chose to study at Blackburn College mainly because of the positive reviews and recommendations I had heard, but also because of its locality.

“During my time at the College I have overcome challenges to receive results I am really proud of. I was diagnosed with ADHD and initially studied A-Levels which I struggled with, so I switched to BTEC and Vocational studies and I haven’t looked back.

“I have really enjoyed studying with a diverse range of people and my overall experience has been wonderful. The tutors treated us with an individual approach and gave us direction and guidance with a lot of things, especially when searching for Universities and working on UCAS applications.”

He added: “The opportunities to develop my research and critical skills have been abundant through studying BTEC courses. These are very important for the future, particularly University.

“I’m now going to Liverpool John Moores University to study a BSc (Hons) Degree in Product Design Engineering.”
