This course is perfect if you’re aged 16-18 and want to improve your GCSE results in order to progress onto A Levels or another Level 3 course.
You can expect to study for your GCSEs in a supportive and friendly learning environment.
You will select a minimum of three GCSEs up to maximum of five GCSE subjects (five GCSEs will only be offered in exceptional cases), which must include English and Maths, if you haven’t already achieved a minimum of grade 4 (grade C) in these subjects. You will receive support and guidance throughout your GCSE study, to ensure you achieve the grades that you want and need.
You’ll study your chosen GCSE subjects over one year so excellent attendance in all subject areas is a must if you’re going to keep up, and ultimately to succeed.
The following subjects are available at GCSE level:
- Religious Studies
Start: 7th September 2020
Course code: C000454 / Q000709
You’ll need 4 GCSEs at grades 9–3 (A*–D) including English Language and Maths - one of either English Language or Maths needs to be grade 9–4 (A*–C). Functional Skills Level 1 can be used as equivalent to GCSE grade 3 (D) and Functional Skills Level 2 can be used as equivalent to GCSE grade 4 (C).
You’ll also need experience of the subjects you’ve chosen, which we’ll assess before you start to make sure you are able to study well at this level.
Assessment is dependent on the GCSE studied and will either be all exams or a mixture of exams and coursework. This will be discussed with you at your interview.
