The opportunity to study these subjects at University truly excites me as it would further my knowledge and understanding. I am currently working on an Extended Project Qualification which I hope to complete by spring next year. The title of my project is 'To Evaluate our Progression of Knowledge of Human DNA' involving combining research and my own knowledge to write an essay. My skills are reflected in my EPQ and it will provide me with an opportunity to develop research and academic skills needed for university, such as the ability to work independently. Through my high school years I was involved in numerous voluntary activities; one of which is the Haslingden High School Arts Council which involved me making decisions about how to improve school facilities.
