Szymon, Health Sciences

The UTC has definitely prepared me to go onto study medicine, even just experiencing the health facilities here is great.

Syzmon is one of the first students to complete his GCSEs at UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park.

He said: “UTC was a fresh start, and a great opportunity to specialise in health sciences. I’ve particularly enjoyed working on the Patients as Educators project in partnership with the University of Sheffield.”

He added: “I’m really pleased with my results, especially my maths and science.”

Szymon sat 9 GCSEs alongside his technical specialism in health sciences, achieving a grade 7 (equivalent to an A) or above in all, including grade 9s (equivalent to a top A*) in biology and physics and a Distinction* in health.

The highly ambitious sixteen-year-old has his sights set on the University of Oxford to study medicine.

He said: “I think medicine will be a challenge, but I really like helping people and I think it’ll be interesting. The UTC has definitely prepared me to go onto study medicine, even just experiencing the health facilities here is great.”

Szymon is now progressing onto Wickersley Sixth Form to study four A Levels in biology, chemistry, maths and psychology.
