    "This year I really enjoyed studying physics, learning about the universe and astronomy. It's something I've studied before but not at such an advanced level. I'm going on to study the Level 3 science course and then I hope to go to university to study pharmacology."

    “I really enjoy BTEC science. It’s really practical and friendly and the teachers are really good. The college isn’t too big – it’s like a family. I’ve been doing work experience at Specsavers as I really want to study Optometry at university and I’ve just been accepted by City University. I’m so happy!”
