Want to choose four subjects?
Students have the opportunity to study four A-levels or BTECs at our Sixth Form, but to do this, you must achieve a grade 7 in English and Maths plus a grade 7 in all subjects selected at A-level or BTEC.
It is worth noting that only three A-levels or BTECs are counted towards the UCAS tariff when making a university application. This is why we also offer the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) as this is accepted by many universities and can strengthen your UCAS application.
