Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Psychology

What advice did you get on your subjects when you came to Coulsdon?

As I gained 6A* and 2As at GCSE, I was encouraged to do four A Levels. I hadn’t considered doing Physics and it’s now become one of my favourite subjects.

What are you planning to do after College??

I’m planning to study Medicine or Maths at university. Medicine is very competitive so good grades are essential, but the teaching here is exceptional and the class sizes are small, so we get a lot of individual attention.

Have you been on any trips?

I went to Royal Holloway University for a master class on Particle Physics, something you don’t normally do until you get to university. We had lectures, did experiments, carried out interactive work on their computers and generally immersed ourselves in the subject, surrounded by real physicists. It’s really broadened my love of the subject; I’m now looking forward to a Biology Ecology trip.

You are part of the Enhancement Group, what does that entail?

Every week, I’ve had help with my debating, listening, presentation and interviewing skills and now we’re going to start working on our personal statements for university applications. This is all essential for me as a scientist and a mathematician.

What do you like most about Coulsdon College?

The science labs! They are new, well equipped, safe and clean. Much better than anything I’ve experienced before. I love the diversity of the people too, both the teachers and the students. I enjoy the fact that I’m surrounded by people who are good at things I’m not necessarily good at. It makes College life so interesting.
