Science is an excellent base for university degrees in a range of areas including biological research, medical, environmental, forensics, medicine, veterinary science, oceanography pharmacy, sports and science communication. The transferable skills you will learn, such as problem solving, are also useful for many other areas, such as Law.
BTECs develop skills and understanding of work within a vocational context and offer direct progression on to BTEC Higher Nationals, Foundation Degrees and First Degree Programmes. BTEC Nationals are recognised by higher education institutions and attract UCAS points. Typically over 90% of our students progress to Higher Education.
A Level Biology, Chemistry and Geology
Previous Institution: Mary Webb School
I chose Biology because it links up really well with my other chosen subjects and it will hold me in good stead for going to university to study paramedic sciences so that I can become a Paramedic.
Applied Science BTEC, Business BTEC
Previous school: Church Stretton School
I had heard great reviews for the College from past and present students. Coming here meant I could be on the Two Plus programme and get my English GCSE so I can complete my A Levels. After college I would like to do a higher Apprenticeship in Engineering. Applied Science gives you a good understanding of the work environment in the science industry and I’ve really enjoyed learning about protein biosynthesis.
A Level Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Further Maths
Previous Institution: Belvidere School, Shrewsbury
I really enjoy Chemistry and think it’s a great subject. I want to study Engineering at university and my Chemistry A Level will help. It is an exciting subject with loads of practical sessions. It allows you to investigate everyday things and discover how they work.
