Dmitry Chernov

Name: DMITRY CHERNOV

A-Level Grades: Biology A*, Physics A*, Chemistry A, Maths A, French A.

"I completed my GCSEs at Albemarle before starting on my A-Levels there. Firstly what amazed me was how good the teaching was across all of my subjects - the Sciences, Maths and French, and how approachable teachers were - always at hand to give me help and support, particularly outside of lessons. During my first year, the Life Skills programme really helped to boost my confidence and develop skills. My Personal Tutor James really supported me and helped me to secure a place at one of the world's top universities. I would certainly recommend Albemarle as a great place to study A-Levels."

"My two years of Albemarle went by really quickly, mainly because I enjoyed my time there, even though people say Alevels are probably the most stressful thing you will do in your life.

I would not have achieved the excellent grades across the board were it not for their continual help and encouragement."

The atmosphere in college is great; staff are easy to interact with and are always available if you have any queries, and there are many opportunities to make friends and meet other students.

Ryan Ju

Name: RYAN JU

A-Level Grades: Mathematics: A, Further Maths: A, Physics: A, Information Technology: A.

"When I first came to Albemarle, I was surprised to find the classes were small enough that everyone was free to raise any problems they might be having. With four subjects, this was vital for me so I didn't fall behind. I also had great freedom to make my own study plans with fantastic support from my teachers, which really made my time at Albemarle productive. The IELTS course also helped me greatly to achieve 7.5 in the test. There were plenty of activities going on all year, from Christmas parties to Easter trips, which gave me plenty of opportunities to make friends outside the classroom and learn beyond bookwork."

Ran is currently reading Maths and Computer Science at Oxford University.

"When I joined Albemarle I was initially apprehensive as I did not know if I could achieve the grades and university place that I wanted. However, through dedicated teaching and encouragement and guidance from my Personal Tutor I started to believe it was possible. Although Albemarle is a small college, the friendly atmosphere and helpful staff and teachers there added a personal touch to the place, which made learning there easy and enjoyable. I achieved the grades I needed to gain a place at medical school and I doubt I would have achieved my goals elsewhere."

"Having studied abroad and in London before joining Albemarle I can honestly say the teaching at Albemarle is the best I have ever had.

I do miss Albemarle very much, even though I enjoy studying at King's."
