Anna studied for A Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Maths and is continuing her studies at the University of Southern California in USA.
“I’ve really enjoyed Putney. I joined the school in Year 7 and have been involved in a little bit of everything which has been nice.
I’ve always known that I wanted to study in America.
I didn’t know much about American Universities before I started the application process so I went to see Putney’s US Universities Coordinator. We had classes every Friday to prepare for the ACT test. I got the score I wanted and applied to 12 different US universities.
The application process involves writing a lot of essays. It’s a very specific style and the US Universities Coordinator really helped me through the process. We would work on the essays together – a different one for each University I applied to. I got into my top three choices which I was very happy about and after visiting them I finally decided on USC.
My major will be Biochemistry, but you can take pretty much any subject in addition – it’s a liberal arts approach.”
