Biography

Why did you choose to come to Petroc?

I got good GCSE grades in the subjects and enjoyed them so I wanted to continue with them.

What did you most enjoy about studying at Petroc?
The quality of teaching was great, I couldn’t fault it. I also made lots of friends – its like a real community. I also got involved in the Oxbridge Academy which was really good at helping me prepare my application.

What are your future plans?
I’m going to university – I have a place at Exeter to study History and Archaeology but also have an offer reconsideration for Cambridge which I was delighted to receive. Once I have finished my degree I would ideally like to do a masters and perhaps become a lecturer.

Don’t put too much stress on yourself. The courses can be tough but find aspects that you enjoy to focus your passions.
