    I'm thinking of applying for St. Marys. I'm struggling to see if it is close to the Government and International Affairs building (I'm applying for Politics with Integrated Foundation Year as I didn't attend Sixth Form or College but started working from 16 in Marketing and Communications in Education, the Arts and eventually in Politics.)

    GCSE's 3B's, 3C's

    A Levels - Non

    Subject: Politics

    Supra-Curricular: Arts (and how it relates to Politics), worked for an MP. heavily involved in The Labour Party and The Co-Operatives and helped co-ordinate campaign activites for StrongerIN and Another Europe is Possible.

    Any advice/other positives regarding St. Mary's would be appreciated.
