What Our Students Say
There is a strong sense of community in this college and I feel that I can rely on my teachers whenever I need help. Computer Science is particularly interesting, more than the other subjects I study because I can develop my problem-solving skills which can be applied to any subject or area of my life. This becomes handy when asked to solve real-world problems in my Tomorrow’s Engineers (Enrichment) challenges.
After leaving Carmel, I hope to go to university to study for an Engineering based degree. Although I haven’t decided yet, I think I would enjoy Software Engineering as I like coding. Unlike the sciences, most of the topics you study at A Level can be useful in later life especially if you intend using lots of technology in the future. Although Computer science is challenging, you will enjoy it.
