Jonathan Burton-Barr

Ludlow College is all about students reaching their full potential. Jonathan is one such student who persevered to achieve his best and flourished with the encouragement and support of his tutors. Achieving an A* grade in Sociology, an A grade in Psychology and a B grade in Drama, he is now progressing to study Psychology at Birmingham University.

This course has been great because it gave me a broad overview of the subject as well as an insight into the latest research; it’s great preparation for university.

I found the whole study of the human cognitive process really interesting and engaging.

The subject really captured my imagination and I decided that I wanted to pursue it further at university. I’m really pleased with my results, I wasn’t sure whether or not I’d get in to university so, pretty awesome really! I can’t believe that I’ve managed to get an A in Psychology which is what I needed and an A* in Sociology which is actually beyond what was needed. I feel like I’ve come so far because when I started the year I would have been happy if I’d got a B and two C grades. My teachers said that I was capable of more than that and they pushed me to push myself; I owe so much to them.

I’m really looking forward to going to university now because if I’m honest, when I started College I never really thought I would be going. But I just adore Psychology and just want to fully focus on studying more and preparing for a career in it.
