Medicine has been a popular option for Downe House girls and this year is no exception. The girls are carefully selecting their universities based on the style of teaching and course content.
Recent leaver Nicole Tan will soon begin her studies as a Medic at Southampton University while post-applicant Pandora Bibby will begin her course at Newcastle University in the autumn.
Nicole rightfully gained her place after achieving a stunning set of grades in five A level and Pre-U subjects - Biology (A*), Chemistry (A), Mathematics (Distinction 2), Physics (A), Chinese (A).
Pandora also achieved an outstanding set of grades in her 5 Pre-U and A level subjects - Biology (A*), Chemistry (A), Physics (A), Global Perspectives and Research (Distinction 2) and the very highest grade was achieved in Philosophy and Theology (Distinction 1).
We know that these two top students, alongside the other Downe House medics off to university in September, will continue the tradition of fine young doctors who are DH alumna.
