Degree: Physics with professional experience (Masters) - Exeter University
At GCSE, I achieved 7A*’s, 2A’s, 2B’s and a C, with A*’s in Maths, English, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Geography and an extra GCSE in Astronomy. At AS level, I achieved an A in Physics, Chemistry and Biology and a B in Maths. Overall, I believe my literacy and numeracy skills are advanced. During my final year of A-Levels I continued with Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Maths, some of the most difficult A levels I could have taken and completed the Extended Project Qualification which allowed me to study further in a subject in my own time. I did this project on the predicted collision of the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxy. I achieved all A’s at the end of the year. This all resulted in me attaining a wide knowledge in physics and maths. At school I tried to help out at various events such as the school science fair and classes for primary school children about science. At a science fair, I was put in charge of a stall where people could come over freely. I would talk them through and demonstrate experiments and explain the science behind it. This helped me develop my skills to give instructions clearly and manage a group of people effectively. When I helped out in the classes for primary school, we did various experiments in order to increase their enthusiasm for science. I also became a personal tutor in year 13 for a student in year 12 doing their AS level physics exams. We had weekly meetings to go over her issues and misunderstandings. This helped me develop me own knowledge and taught me how to clearly explain difficult concepts. I have taken part in 2 separate science competitions due to being selected by the school to represent them. In these science competitions, there were particular tasks where the group of people chosen by the school to represent them, had to work together as a team. In order for us to do well, we had to work efficiently, split the work equally and recognise individual strengths. I believe we did this well and it gave me strong teamwork skills. It also helped my problem solving skills and helped me to be able to think quickly when placed in a difficult position. I was also on the Student council at school for 2 years which gave me more confidence through speaking and discussing important issues. My leadership skills benefited hugely as I was responsible for my form and their views. Since being at university, I have completed a number of compulsory sessions on how to carry out a presentation meaning I am well educated in this area. One example of carrying out a presentation would be when I had to research and present my findings on the Bohr model of the atom. I was assessed on this and received a comfortable 2:1. Outside of education, I do a lot of volunteering as I thoroughly enjoy working with the public. I volunteered at Leicester Triathlon club for roughly 10 months, where I was an assistant couch. I dealt with children of various ages and became familiar with interacting with them and their parents. During my time at Leicester Triathlon Club, I gained more and more responsibility and I now feel I can be easily trusted with any task I am required to complete. I got on perfectly with each member of the triathlon club, whether it be a child, parent or part of the staff. I am a friendly person and find it no trouble to attain a positive relationship with whoever I work with. Overall, I have had many experiences that would help me tutor effectively, including previous experience in tutoring which resulted in improvement from the student.

They are a group of specialised cells that respond to different changes in the environment called stimuli. Different types of receptors have different stimuli they react to such as light, sound, chemicals and pressure. They are often found in sensory organs such as eyes, ears, nose, tongue and skin.see more
Nuclear fusion is the opposite to fission. In nuclear fusion, two nuclei of lighter elements combine to create a nucleus of a larger element, whereas in nuclear fission, a nucleus splits into two smaller nuclei. Both release energy, however fusion releases a lot more. Nuclear power uses fission to produce energy. The sun is powered by nuclear fusion.see more
You would use the quadratic formula when trying to find the value of a variable such as x in a quadratic equation but it can not be successfully factorised with whole numbers. Treating the the equation in the form ax2+bx+c=0 then putting the values into the equation, two values of x will be found from switching the sign in the equation.
