Students meeting the standard entry criterion will typically choose 3 A-levels to study throughout Years 12 and 13.
However, students may additionally choose the Level 3 Mathematical Studies course. This course is half the size of an A-level and therefore may be taken by any student as a fourth option.
A small number of students may wish to choose 4 A-levels to study throughout Year 12 and 13. To study 4 instead of 3 courses students would need to obtain 5 or more grades at GCSE at 7, 8, 9, A or A*. Students meeting the qualifying criterion for doing 4 courses above may, of course, only choose 3 A-level courses if that is their wish.
Our traditional approach has been to provide a fixed menu of option blocks from which students make their choices.
However, this year we are asking students to simply tell us which subjects they would like to do at this stage.
This will tell us the extent of the demand for each subject and we will use this to construct the Option Blocks from which students will make their final choices.
The Option Blocks will allow a wide range of choices but inevitably, as in other institutions, not every possible combination will be available.
At a later date students will be able to choose from the final option blocks and consult with staff if their combination of subjects chosen initially is not available.Sixth Form Entry RequirementsDownload
