AS/A2: General Studies at Stephenson Studio School

Course description

GENERAL STUDIES General studies broaden the sixth form curriculum and ensures all students have a balance of arts, science and social science subjects. Students follow a rotation of courses to prepare them for the AS and A2 papers. Lessons are organised to maximise student participation and to develop discussion and presentation skills. The rotation of courses is punctuated at intervals by lectures from guest speakers, discussion panels and drama presentations. Some university offers include general studies and the Advanced GCE result may well be taken into account by others if students do not achieve the grades or points required in their higher education offer. Attendance on the course provides evidence that a broader education programme is being followed and maintains literacy and numeracy skills for all students, irrespective of their chosen subjects.

Entry requirements
