A Level Results Day: The low down from two of our students...

We talked to two of our students to find out how they got on in their A Level results today...

Greg Woods achieved an A* in maths, an A in physics and an A in chemistry. He is going on to study civil engineering at Bristol University.

Which school did you go to? I went to RGS.

How are you feeling today? I'm happy with my results. I was nervous about my last physics exam as it didn't go as I expected it to but it worked out ok.

Are you looking forward to university? Yes, I'm looking forward to starting something new.

Can you tell me a bit about your time at the Centre? What did you get involved with? I was a member of the Robot Club. We took part in a Student Robotics Competition, where we had to create a robot with a computer inside it and we programmed it to pick up boxes. It was a lot of fun and interesting to learn about the programming of computers.

I also went on a trip to Cern, Geneva to see the Large Hadron Collider. This trip, where I was official photographer, included a trip around Geneva itself and a 3-hour hike in the mountains. It was brilliant.

Have you enjoyed your time at the Centre? Yes it has been great and I have had a good time here. The teachers and support staff have been supportive and I have felt comfortable with them.

Kate O'Driscoll achieved an A in history, an A in psychology and a B in religious studies. She is going to study history at Edinburgh University.

Which school did you go to? St Bede's.

Have you enjoyed your time at the Centre? Yes I have had a good time at the Centre. I have particularly enjoyed studying history because there is always something interesting going on. The staff have been very supportive, but sometimes it has been difficult to get up in the morning!!

Are you looking forward to university? Yes, especially the independence you have at university. I think I will like that.

Can you tell me a bit about your time at the Centre? I was able to get involved in the Access to Bristol History Scheme at Bristol Uni. These were mini lectures on history subjects. I found this really interesting and it was useful to see the differences between school and uni, plus to see if you still liked the subject at university.
