      Like you I had to study science at school. I also studued GCSE PE and found that science is used in that as well to look at the bones and muscles. I enjoyed this so much that I went on to do A Level Sports Studies where we learnt even more about the science of the body in relation to sport. As I enjoyed this so much and could realte it to my own sports I decided to study Sport Science at University and the rest is history. The key is to realise science plays such a big part in our lives that there are so many different areas and you have to find the one that you enjoy the most. I love being a sports scientist.
