A Level History (French, Biology and Chemistry)
Previous Institution: Belvidere School
I really enjoyed learning modern history as it can be made applicable to news today. You pick up a useful skill set doing A Level History and the lessons are interactive and informative. The essay writing and critical thinking helped me with my application to Oxford University and I have accepted a place at Christ Church College, Oxford to study Philosophy.
A Level Geology (English Combined, Psychology)
Previous Institution: Llanfyllin High School
SCG offered loads of options in the subjects I was interested in. Geology is a great course with friendly teachers. I have enjoyed learning about volcanic rock and activities and plan to continue the subject at university.
A Level Economics (Politics, History)
Previous Institution: Wrekin College
Both my brothers came to Shrewsbury Colleges Group and really recommended it. I wanted more freedom at College, so this was the perfect choice. I enjoy studying how individual businesses work in Economics and I want to continue pursuing it at University level.
A Level Sociology (Business, Photography)
Previous school: The Priory School
I thought Sociology A Level sounded really interesting. I want to go into Nursing after College and it will really help me achieve that. I enjoyed learning about sociological methods. Sociology helps you to have an open mind and see things from different perspectives. Sociology is a relevant and interesting subject. I will be continuing it at university, but not sure what I want to specialise in yet, I just know I want to work in Sociology. The teaching is good, and relevant to current situations in the world and you learn skills that you can transfer over to other subjects. I have enjoyed learning about crime sociology the most – why crimes are committed and how authorities react.
Applied Science BTEC (Sport BTEC, A Level Maths)
Previous Institution: The Priory School
Applied Science is a very interactive and fun subject. Experiments are my favourite thing to do and there are lots to get stuck into. Applied Science can really help you gain UCAS points and get good results. This summer I will be going to work at a sports camp in Pennsylvania through Camp America. I would then like to continue into a sports-based career and this BTEC will be an asset.
