I found out about GPUTC at my school careers fair and knew I had to have a look as I want to be an architect.
At my old school I was predicted D’s and E’s at GCSE and told that I should look for a different school to study my A Levels at as I would not achieve the entry requirements.
My GCSE results were A’s and B’s (much higher than my predictions) and I now study the Built Environment with A Levels in Physics and Business Studies. My old school did not offer me the opportunity to study the Built Environment in a grown up environment where I get to work with sponsors and learn from people in industry.
I find the UTC has a much better layout in terms of the longer school day and I am really enjoying my time so far.
