Entry requirements

B grades in GCSE Maths or English


There are two exams in Year 12 which make up the AS qualification. These are made up of multiple choice, short answer and data response/case study questions. If the student wishes to progress to the A level in Year 13 there will be three examinations in June of Year 13. These will solely determine their A Level grade. This is different from the previous system when AS made up half of the A Level grade.

Future opportunities
