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.
