“I have very much enjoyed the past academic year and am already looking forward to next year,” said 30-year-old Paulina Patzova when we caught up with her to get her views on how the first year of her A-levels in maths, physics and chemistry has gone.
“I have improved my problem-solving capabilities and developed more transferrable skills, which I find very practical, and the course is helping me to identify my strengths and weaknesses, as well as gain experience and learn from mistakes.
“The terms have gone pretty quickly – it’s been a lot of work but also lots of fun and it feels very rewarding knowing how much I’ve learned over the course.”
“To anyone thinking about coming to college, I’d say that it can be beneficial in many ways. As the saying goes, ‘education is something you cannot finish’. Whether it’s improving skills, the prospect of a better job, or, as in my case, a change in career, the more you learn and the more you know, the better your understanding of the world is. The college will improve your personal growth, in addition to increasing your earning potential and access to job opportunities.”
