- School: St Wilfrid's CE Academy
- Studied: Level 3 Engineering
I am delighted that after sitting the exam in November 2021 I have gained a grade 6! I didn’t expect this at all
“I enjoyed studying English Language GCSE at Blackburn College alongside my Level 3 Engineering course.
The atmosphere is different compared to school as your main subject is something that you have chosen and are interested in. I understand much more now how important English is for my future. When I have been looking at Apprenticeship jobs and University courses after my course they all ask to have a GCSE English Language qualification at grade 4 or higher.
I knew that not having GCSE English would hold me back. I gained a 3 in my GCSE English course at school but I am delighted that after sitting the exam in November 2021 I have gained a grade 6! I didn’t expect this at all.
Next year I will start the second year of my Level 3 course. I will no longer have to continue with my English classes and can now focus fully on Engineering.”
