The choice of Psychology has been hugely popular this year with some outstanding results across the board. Seven girls have achieved places to study Psychology at universities across the UK, from Durham all the way to Belfast. The subject provides an excellent starting point for careers in both Science and the Arts, accounting for its status as a highly sought-after discipline. Sadie Hackett was “thrilled” to discover she had achieved three As in her A Levels this morning, meaning she will be studying Psychology at the University of Leeds.
While she did feel some nerves this morning due to the uncertainty about Results and not being able to sit formal examinations, she found the experience quite affirming. Sadie was relieved, not surprised, upon seeing her excellent grades. “History has always been challenging for me and I found it especially difficult revising over lockdown without the work and social balance I had in Year 12. However when I opened my envelope I didn’t feel too shocked as I knew I had put my all into my revision.” Sadie’s resilience and determination have clearly seen her through any struggles and she now cannot wait to experience all that Leeds University has to offer. “I attended a virtual open day and tour but as soon as I accepted my place my Dad and I went to visit. I felt at home straight away!”
Good luck Sadie and we hoped you enjoyed the lovely breakfast celebrations with family.
