      I did English Language and English Literature, Maths Physics, Metalwork, German, Chemistry and History for GCSE (the English subjects are still very important for an engineer because you need to be able to communicate clearly in both the verbal and written form).

      For A Level I did Maths, Further Maths, Physics and General Studies.

      All of those qualifications got me a place at university to study Mechanical Engineering

      Left school with zero ‘A’ levels, and two ‘O’ levels (GCSE); Technical Drawing and Geography. The rest I gained on my path through employment. I used my skills and attributes to push through life.
