    I'm taking Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry. I'm hoping to become either a mechanical or aerospace engineer. I plan to apply to Cambridge, Imperial College (where I had my Arkwright interview), Southampton, Warwick, and somewhere else that I haven't decided for university.

    Good luck! I hope you get an interview (let me know if you do ).
    thanks for your reply,
    and i will let you know... fingers crossed

    Thanks! Firstly I applied to do a Headstart course (http://www.etrust.org.uk/headstart/courses.cfm) which cost about £250. If I get a place, I later discovered that Arkwright will reimburse the cost of a Headstart course in addition to your scholarship . Other than that, I've spent quite a bit on books to make sure I'm well read for my university application. I'm also currently thinking of a project I could do in year 13 that could have the costs of materials etc payed for by my scholarship.

    The scholarship has also provided something just as valuable in the form of my sponsor (Cobham Plc http://www.cobham.com/) for work experience and networking.

    Good luck in the rest of your application! Let me know if you get an interview

    Who decides a scholar's sponsor? Do you choose or is it decided by Arkwright administrators?

    Arkwright admins will decide based on what you said you wanted to do as a career in your interview and application form.
