Having grown up in Bournemouth, one of the constant elements were the beaches and Applebury head. Although I had no idea what Geology was back then, I was extremely curious why everything was the way it was. I remember asking my father if the beaches were always there and why the sea does not just swallow us up one day and he would try to explain what was going on. Looking back, it does not seem like much, yet, I am inclined to consider it the moment when my passion sparked. Now, having travelled to Spain and extensively through Australia, I feel that my curiosity has developed into something much bigger than a mere curiosity. Having seen the limestone rock of Gibraltar, the sandstone Uluru Mountain and the world’s largest coral reef, I feel that I have groomed a deep interest in the forces that shaped our planet and its landscapes. In all honesty, I was always interested in all sciences, not only Geology. When I was in school I hardly ever had any problems with math or science, always getting good grades. I remember that my teachers were really pleased with my efforts and that, in my view, spurred me on to do as best as I could every time. What is more, I was one day reading about the scientific method that research use when they carry out their work. I can remember quite vividly how enthusiastic I was about it and, ever since, I have tried to employ to the best of my abilities when trying to gain insight into something I knew little to nothing about. For these reasons, my belief is that I posses quite an analytical mind that is stimulated by progress and novelty so that I feel that will not have problems dealing a great volume of new information coming my way. Now, in regards to the reason why I want to study Geology, the simplest thing I can say is that it was an intuitive decision. If I were to expand, I would say that I am generally interested in our planet. All the knowledge I have gained so far about it and the forces that govern it seems to be at most superficial and still, I would love to know more. Furthermore, the fact that our planet is constantly changing is another factor that fuels my interest. From Pangeea to the Ice Ages and to today’s Earth, things have changed dramatically and the process is highly unlikely to stop there. Thus, Geology can be considered an exciting and constantly developing field, meaning that I cannot see myself growing bored of it. In addition to this, I feel like it is a very hands-on field of work and, as a bonus, the graduate prospects are much better than that of other courses. Considering all this, my passion for Geology and my analytic way of thinking, I am inclined to believe that this course and field of work would fit me perfectly. Being a mature student, I have had the chance to travel and develop certain skills, or abilities in my time away from formal education. From the moment I left school to this day, I have had the chance to work in quite a few different areas. Firstly, I worked with my father, helping him with his window restoration business for around 2 and one half years. That was my first contact with the real life and it was, needless to say, a forming experience. During that time I got a better sense of what responsibility and hard work really mean. Afterwards, I managed to get a job in a warehouse where I was meant to be packing pies into their package. Even if I considered that my father was hard on me, I did not know the half of it. It was during that time that I learned the value of teamwork and the pressure of deadlines. In order to meet our deadlines, each and every one of us had to be consistent and do their job properly. Thus, sometimes I would work overtime in order to meet them, even if the environment was

I will strive to listen to my intuition and use my finding to determine the greater good for everyone. My preferred ethical lense is that of results and autonomy. I am independent, and I get things done my own way.
Along with every set of ethical standards comes a blind spot, sometimes causing faults and setbacks. I sometimes tend to be satisfied with too little. So long as I am satisfied with my current needs, I tend to be complacent, leaving problems unresolved…
The study of the mind has had a profound effect upon society in an eclectic amount of ways, ranging from the relatively recent and extensive improvements on the healthcare of patients and mentally ill to the development of infants and the evolution of humans as dependant social creatures. Psychology is the fundamental basis of society and as humans we are all driven by this powerful force which we are still incapable of fully understanding. I initially chose psychology out of…
Growing up, my grandmother taught me great life lessons of passion, kindness and ambition. I remember an incident when we were sleeping one night. I could hear a loud voice calling for her from afar. I awoke, grabbed the flashlight and followed my grandmother. My job was to hold the lamp for her and escort her as we walked to the house of the pregnant woman about to give birth. I was only 8 years old. These events happened all the time so I already knew what to do. It was then…
I have lived in Wandsworth all my life and I have one sister who is two and a half years my senior. The subjects I chose at GCSE were ICT, History, Performing Arts, French and Spanish. I chose these subjects because I enjoyed them and I thought I could do well in them. I chose two languages rather than only one as I was in the top set and I am able to manage this well to get two qualification. A subject I have found challenging is Chemistry as I found it quite hard to understand…

My personal statement
Like many teenage boys, I can usually be found playing video games or banging away on a set of drums. However, my motivations for doing so may differ from those of others. Ever since I can remember, I have dealt with the burden of being epileptic. To be honest, it is not as big a burden as one would generally think. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder of the brain and can cause a majority of different types of seizures…

Personal Ethical Statement
The Ethical Lens Inventory was thought to be a waste of time and a pointless homework assignment. Now after completing, my view on this assignment has juristically changed due to the fact I was able to learn new things about myself, and have a better understanding on how to overcome obstacles.
My preferred ethical lens is Collaboration. Collaboration is essential throughout life…
I have attended St. Christopher’s CE High School for the last 5 years, and I have studied a wide range of subjects. My favourite subject has always been Geography as I show a great interest in it, and excel in the subject.
During my time at St. Christopher’s I have received a merit badge for gaining 100 merits in a school year, and multiple certificates of attendance for having 100% attendance throughout a school year, although with many subject awards for RE. I used to play…
