Engineering was the “obvious path” for Jeremy Snudden, following in the footsteps of his grandad, dad and brother.

The student, of St Benedict’s Catholic School in Bury St Edmunds, was thrilled to achieve A*s in maths and physics and As in further maths and product design in his A-levels.

The 18-year-old, from Bury St Edmunds, said: “I have always wanted to be an engineer, from year six or something. From about the age of 10.

“As a kid I have always liked seeing how things work. It was the obvious path. I have always enjoyed maths as a subject.”

He said he came from a family of engineers. “Pretty much all the males,” he added. “It’s been mechanical for everyone pretty much. I have grown up around it.”

He started preparing for the exams around Easter and then got into the swing of it.

“The exams just come one after the other. It never ends, and then it feels so weird just to be done.”

Jeremy has been accepted at Bath to study engineering.

The Government is focusing on supporting STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects to help boost UK industry and the economy.

A STEM Academy is set to open on the County Upper site in September 2019.

Its aim is to develop the next generation of scientists, technicians, engineers and programmers, and provide the opportunity for pupils to become the innovators, inventors and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
