      I found science interesting school, but I wouldn’t say easy. I enjoyed doing chemistry, maths and physics so I didn’t mind spending a lot of time on them, getting better at them. This, in turn, made them easier.

      My favourite part of science was doing experiments – I liked the logical steps behind doing an experiment, and the sense of satisfaction I got when something worked was awesome 🙂

      I didn’t find it very easy, but I did find it interesting! I really enjoyed the experiments in chemistry, they get even better in university! But I hated any maths so always avoided that or did badly. Still was really good at learning all the theory though, cos I found it so cool, knowing how parts of the world around us works.

      I found some parts easy and others not so much! I always struggled with some of the more abstract concepts and maths in physics, and I struggled with plant biology because I didn’t find it interesting and found it difficult to focus. My favourite part of science was always chemistry, appropriately enough, as I’ve gone on to become a chemist! 🙂
