      We didn’t have an option for science- it was a must for us for GCSEs, the options were for subjects like Geography or History, Music or Art or PE or 2nd Language.
      I then chose to do sciences for A level- Physics Chemistry Biology and Maths, with the choice of dropping one if it got too hard. I thought the 4 sciences would leave me with alot of choices when it came to picking a University course as I hadn’t got a clear idea of what I wanted to do when I was 16. I thought “this’ll leave as many doors open to me as possible”
