Fergus Year 12

Advice for future students: If you take subjects you like it feels like less work. It also helps if you do your work on the day it is given, which helps it stop becoming overwhelming.
Things I have learnt so far: So far I have learnt to keep on top of my work by summarising lessons and doing lots of practice. The best part is how in control you are. If you do all of your work in your free periods, you have more time to spend doing what you want.
My plans for the future: After the J6th, I hope to study either aerospace engineering or mechanical engineering at a University, hopefully Bristol or Imperial College.
