We anticipate that most students will take three A Levels, which is line with the updated expectations of university courses. Some of may choose to stretch themselves by taking an additional AS course with an external examination at the end of Year 12, while some may choose to take an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) during the summer between Years 12 and 13. It should be recognised that the new A Levels place a higher demand on students, and we monitor students carefully to ensure that they are not overloaded. It is expected that an additional AS will only usually be taken by those targeting the most competitive courses at university, such as Medicine, Vet Science or those available at Oxford and Cambridge. In addition, many enrichment opportunities will be available to develop a wider range of skills and support your university application and readiness for work.
