What was your previous School?: Lewes Old Grammar School
Why did you choose BHASVIC?: I chose BHASVIC because of the independence and freedom that you gain as a student. It's much bigger than any school I've been to before, and the facilities for my A-levels were just amazing. To me it felt like a mini university campus, allowing me to take charge of my own education and social life.
What subjects are you studying?: Single Maths, Graphic Design, and Computer Science
What’s been the most enjoyable?: I enjoyed having a really open schedule throughout my time at BHASVIC. It meant that I had time to do my work, meet my friends, and take part in extra-curricular activities. When I was struggling in an area during class, I had the free time to focus on it, without my studies taking up my entire week.
What were your challenges and what have you learnt?: I found mentally balancing my work and social life quite challenging. There were times where I found coursework particularly quite overwhelming. The support system at the college was great, and the flexibility of my teachers enabled me to complete everything I wanted to and really thrive. From that, I have learnt that things don't have to be set in stone, and you really can tailor your experiences to help you succeed.
What are your future plans?: I plan to go to Cardiff University to study Architecture. I think that my time at BHASVIC has helped me become more independent and prepared me for the next step.
