Peter
Peter M

Peter is a talented mathematician who has faced many challenges in getting a good education to maximise his potential. Peter lives in an isolated village and had to walk 15 miles to get to school each day to do his A-level studies. His background has made it difficult for him to learn English to the standard required to excel in his academic studies. His school was unable to offer the subjects that would have better suited his poor grasp of English. Thus he has under-achieved in his A-level subjects. We offered Peter a special scholarship where he lived with Mark and Laura to learn English and study A-levels in Mathematics and Further Mathematics.
A-level Results: Maths A*, Physics C, Further Maths C, Accounts C
University: He has an internship with a local company as an accounts clerk and they will pay for his University Studies through UNISA. This is huge for Peter and his family.
