However, our A Level students have shown nothing but determination, and with the unwavering support of their tutors, have secured offers to study extremely competitive courses like Medicine and Engineering. 

We caught up with some of our incredible MC6 students below, discussing everything from their fantastic University offers to their personal experience of life as student at MC6.
