Mix & Match Curriculum

Students can do any combination of all A Levels, all BTEC Level 3s or a 'mix and match' of both.

Students on the Advanced Level Programme are required to study four ‘units’ in their first year and three ‘units’ in their second year.

This means that typical course combinations on the Advanced Level First Year Programme might include either a combination of 4 AS levels (dropping to 3 A Levels in the second year) or all BTEC Level 3s

Other students might decide to 'mix and match' A Levels with BTEC Level 3s (and GCSEs). Here are some examples (as the different types of BTEC qualifications can be a little tricky to understand):

Please note: A member of staff will guide you through possible course combinations when you attend your interview.
