Chloe studied Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and took an Extended Project Qualification at St Brendan’s. After collecting her results, the 18 year old was in shock to discover she had achieve 3 A*s and an A! “I really didn’t expect this!” she explained. Chloe will be going on to study Medicine at the University of Exeter in September.

Hannah was also in many of Chloe’s classes and had the same ambition of studying Medicine. Hannah studied Maths, Chemistry and Physics and successfully secured her place at Newcastle University with an impressive A* and two As! “My favourite part of studying sciences was learning about a specific cancer drug, which one of my relatives was successfully treated with during the time I was learning about it!” Hannah looks forward to putting her fascination with medicine and chemistry to the test next year in Newcastle.
