Ms Sarah Ezdani, the tutor of the class of 2021, Head of Academic, took an affectionate farewell of her students, and she sent best wishes to Jonathan:
"Jonathan represents everything a teacher wants in a learner-accountability, diligence, motivation, but his warm-heartedness, ready smile and an ‘I am good’ response every time you greet him makes me comfortable in the fact that Jonathan already is miles ahead than most in his development; I wish you peace and confidence.”
The big boy with a little shy has clear eyes and always smiles. It has been two years since Jonathan came to Lucton, and the experience here is still fresh in his mind. In the casual interview, he reminisced the moment of communicating with teachers and peers in daily life, the special experience of online learning during the pandemic, rowing hard in the river and swinging a bat on the football pitch.

“家庭的影响比较深，” Jonathan 说道，“我的父亲从事电子行业，也让我从小就对这些有着深深的兴趣。所以在专业的选择上，我没有犹豫过。”这个平静、害羞的学生在谈及自己的想法时有着从容的坚定。
"The influence from the family is deep," Jonathan said. "My father is engaged in the electronics industry, which makes me have a deep interest in it since I was a child. Therefore, I have not hesitated when choosing a major." This gentle and shy boy was firm when talking about his choice.
Jonathan was also very cautious when applying for the university. "The ranking of the universities is not the only criterion." Jonathan said. The universities he applied for are almost in the top 50 in the world rankings by subject of electrical and electronic engineering. During the application process, both he and the university guidance teachers were under a lot of pressure, but he was always firm and perseverant.
"Thanks to the teachers for helping me have mocks, which was of great help to my application." Jonathan said.
When it comes to learning, Jonathan said that he likes experimental courses very much. “Practice is a very good way to learn,” Jonathan said. Physics is the subject he has most exposure to experiments. Although electric current, magnetism, light waves are invisible and intangible, they are common in our lives, and experiments show them visibly so that the theorems verified from it are easier to understand.
"However, I regret that I did not take chemistry as an elective course in Lucton." When asked the reason, he joked: "because there are more experimental courses in Chemistry." Then he added, "I started to realize that all the disciplines are interlinked, and I regret that I didn’t have much knowledge of other subjects before entering university, especially Chemistry, which is closely related to Physics and the major of Electrical and Electronic Engineering that I will learn further next. "
"However, when I go to university, I will learn Chemistry by myself." Jonathan said seriously.
Jonathan has maintained a high degree of self-discipline during the time he studied the A Level courses in Lucton. In his opinion, every stage of A Level is very important. "Take Mathematics as an example. I think the scope of A Level mathematics is very wide. A lot of knowledge is available for students, and it also allows me to explore my interests in more detailed branches earlier." From Mathematics to Advanced Mathematics, it is clear that Jonathan has begun to learn further. "Every stage of A Level is important," Jonathan said. “There are different examinations in different stages of A Level. At each stage, every examination result will be recorded into the total score. It's impossible to catch up if you didn’t learn well before."
He has received many offers from prestigious schools, which encourages him to devote more attention to his study and deal with the final test. We can still often see him studying hard in the library at school. Jonathan left an impression of earnestness on many teachers and peers. No matter in life or studying, he always takes everything with a smile and takes everything seriously, and he is closer to his dreams step by step for his own future.
