UTC OLP student Emma is off to Cambridge

Eighteen-year-old Emma Caroe is off to University of Cambridge to study Mathematics after achieving four A* A Levels.

Speaking about receiving her results and her acceptance to Cambridge University, Emma said: “I am really excited and really happy! I didn’t think I would get in.”

Emma achieved three A* grades in her results this year in Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics. She had previously achieved an A* in her Maths A Level which she took while she was in Year 11.

Discussing why she had she set her sights on Cambridge, she said: “I knew it would be a place that would attract loads of intelligent and passionate people, and I want to work and learn in that kind of environment.”

Emma joined UTC in Year 10 after previously being home schooled. Initially she studied the Health Sciences and Social Care specialism alongside her GCSEs, before concentrating solely on her A Levels in Years 12 and 13.

Commenting on why she decided to join UTC, she said: “I like that it’s a small school, so you get to know the teachers better and that the classes are small. It was also nice not to have the youngest years, it made the school more peaceful.”
