      Not particularly actually. It probably was one of my least favourite sciences. I wish I had stuck it out until A Level since it seems to get more interesting then! And I enjoyed it at university.

      I liked the hands on experiments, but only really enjoyed the theory when I could see how it related to these. There’s more of a focus on what is happening in engineering, which I like.

      Yes, but the physics taught in schools are a lot more fun these days.
      In my day it was mostly classical physics, i..e. Newtons laws of motion and stuff like that. So I was a physicist first and then went on to become an engineer.

      But now the GCSE and A level course go on to explore the universe and sate of the art technology such as the large hardon collider. So learining about physics is a lot more interesting than in my day.
