      I did GCSEs in maths, chemistry, biology, physics, art, history, german, english literature, english language, religious education.

      My favourite subjects were art, chemistry, and history – they were all very different subjects so it was hard for me to decide what to do at university! I ended up doing chemistry but I still do lots of art in my spare time

      I didn’t do any GCSEs as I went to school in Mexico and they have a very different system there, but the subjects that I studied before my undergraduate course were Maths, Chemistry, Physics, History, Spanish Literature, Communication Science, Psychology, Graphical Design, and Art.

      When I did my GCSEs English Lit, English Language, Maths and IT were compulsory. I chose to do Triple Science so I had Physics, Chemistry and Biology as separate GCSEs. Then for my other options I chose PE, Spanish and Catering because I love baking.
