“Having been disappointed not to achieve the grades at A-Level at my last school to access dentistry I decided not to give up. Abbey College Manchester has a strong reputation of getting students into such competitive degree courses so I decided to retake Biology and Chemistry there.
It was a hard, intensive year but also an enjoyable one. The teachers were friendly, provided great guidance and advice, and were really knowledgeable about their subjects. They were always willing to help you at any time and push you further, sometimes beyond the syllabus in order to gain a more in-depth understanding and knowledge of my chosen subjects.”
Amara has gone to the University of Leeds to study Dentistry.
