Why study the AQA Baccalaureate?
The AQA Baccalaureate is a composite qualification which recognises students who have shown a willingness to develop their educational experiences and shown personnel growth beyond their academic study. In addition it:
- • Clearly demonstrates the skills and personal qualities which employers and universities are looking for.
• Provides breadth of experience.
• Promotes independent learning, self management and research skills through the
completion of an extended project.
• Helps students see education in a wider context and encourages lifelong learning.
• Fosters active citizenship and community involvement.
What do I have to do?
- By the end of Year 13 you will have:
• Achieved 3 A levels at E grade or above
• Achieved E grade or above in Critical Thinking at AS level.
• Successfully completed an AS level Extended Project Qualification.
• Completed 100 hours of Enrichment over 2 years.
How will I be assessed?
The level of the AQA Baccalaureate is then dependent on the grades achieved in three GCE subjects at Advanced level and the grade in the Extended Project.
Three A levels and Extended Project each at Grade E or above = AQA Bacc Pass
Three A levels and Extended Project each at Grade C or above = AQA Bacc with Merit
Three A levels and Extended Project each at Grade A or above = AQA Bacc with Distinction.
- • 5 GCSE at C or above including Maths and English
• Successful completion of specified areas (see above).
There are no expenses associated with this qualification
