The College has a brilliant reputation and creates a lot of future Russell Group students. Having the opportunity to take part in the Royal Chemistry Society’s Schools’ Analyst Competition was a useful experience and the support systemat College is great - you can email your teachers whenever you need their help. I would like to study Biochemistry in 2020, so I will spend my next year improving my knowledge through work experience and researching the best suited university for my needs.
