Being dyspraxic, I have problems with taking notes, organising my work and making myself understood in essays. When I was younger, concentration was a problem too.
I am now going on to study Medicine at Cambridge.

At Sevenoaks, I used a laptop in class and exams and had extra help with organisation whenever I needed it. The Learning Support team was always prepared to step in and fight my corner and subject teachers, provided all the extra notes and assistance I required. Lower down the school I was also helped to improve my concentration and develop problem-solving skills. I am leaving Sevenoaks this year and have a place at Cambridge to read Medicine.
