Course Overview

Students can study 3 or 4 AS Levels in their first year followed by 3 or 4 A2 Levels in their second year. Alternatively, students can study a mixture of AS and A2 Levels in the same year, including the ability to study fast-track A Levels (completing an A Level subject in one year). To study fast-track students must have studied A Level previously. Students will usually study 1 fast track A Level in one year or a maximum of 2 fast track A Levels in one year.

This will be further explained at interview. There is a commitment required of 5 hours attendance per week per A Level subject.
