Want to progress to university or a higher apprenticeship? Our two-year A Level or A+ Programmes are great options. Most students study three subjects. But if you have a track record of high academic achievement, you might decide to study four A Level subjects, or take an Extended Project Qualification as your fourth subject.

You must be comfortable studying for, and taking, external exams because that’s how most A Level subjects are assessed at the end of the two years.

An A+ Programme lets you combine A Level subjects with a BTEC Extended Certificate for a better balance of exams and coursework.

This is you:

• I am good at exams

• I like theories, ideas and facts

• I want to study three subjects in depth

• I intend to go on to university or get a higher apprenticeship

• I’m happy doing independent study and research outside of the classroom

You’ll need:

• A minimum of five GCSEs at grade 5 or above including Maths and English Language, in subjects relevant to your A Level or A+ Programme subject choices. Some subjects have additional entry requirements.

Your Study Programme:

• Usually three subjects over two years

• Relevant work experience

• Tutorial sessions

• Enrichment opportunities

• Independent study and regular homework

• Internal progression exams and key assessments throughout the course and external final exams in year 2
