Mix & Match Curriculum

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

The 'norm' is for students on the Advanced Level Programme to study three 'units' (3 A Levels or equivalents) in both the Lower and Upper Sixth.  

Some students may be allowed to do a fourth A Level which they would usually 'cash in' for an AS Level at the end of the Lower Sixth. Please note however,  that not all A Levels have 'nestable' AS Levels.  

Students wishing to study four A Levels should include a fourth subject on their application form, so that this option can be discussed at interview.

Here are some examples of how students might 'mix and match' their study programmes.
