Choosing the Right Course…
As a general rule you will take three or four AS or equivalent subjects in your first year at college; pursuing three of these to a full A Level qualification at the end of Year 2. We’ll help you make your subject choices and agree the most appropriate programme of learning when you apply to study with us.
- There are two parts to each A Level qualification. An AS (Advanced Subsidiary) qualification makes up the first year and an A2 (full A-Level) qualification is awarded at the end of the second year.
- Most full A Levels are made up of between four and six modules. The AS qualification makes up 50% of the marks for the full A Level. You are assessed by a mixture of coursework and examinations throughout the two years of study.
- With A Levels you can progress to university or into employment.
