General Studies AS Level at Queen Elizabeth High School

Course description

General Studies is a subject in its own right which integrates knowledge from different disciplines. It involves the study of important topics from science and technology, the arts, humanities and the social sciences, and the interconnections between these areas of knowledge. General Studies is accepted as an A Level in its own right by a number of university courses. Whilst this will depend on the university and the course, every year at QEHS we have students who get onto university courses because of their General Studies grade. Even if a university does not accept General Studies, it is an important enhancement. The skills and knowledge needed to pass General Studies suggest a well informed and well rounded student.


The General Studies specification has not yet been reformed: the exam consists therefore of AS Level and A2 level units
