Lucy’s excellent GCSE results have cemented her decision to pursue Law after she finishes her A levels in 2021.

“I had originally wanted to become a vet but my GCSE years have taught me that I much prefer essay based subjects and languages rather than Science plus I have discovered that I am squeamish around blood!” explained Lucy Benn who received her GCSE results at Newcastle High today which included three 9s, five grade 8s and two grade 7s.

Lucy had originally opted to study A Levels in Biology Chemistry and Spanish but is now considering her options which will include Economics and Religious Studies instead.

She went on to explain more about her change of heart.

“As well as essay based subjects, I have always enjoyed the idea of debating and putting forward an argument.  I have been researching the content of Law degrees and I am going to start visiting some universities this autumn.

“I am excited for Sixth Form, especially being able to focus on just three subjects, as well as get involved in all the clubs and societies that are available.”

In the meantime, Lucy will be celebrating her excellent results with her sister who collected her A Level results at NHSG last week and is going to study Medicine in September.  It’s an exciting time for both. Congratulations Lucy and Holly!
