Advanced Study Programme (Level 3)
Your Advanced Study Programme (Level 3) will typically consist of 3 core subjects, either A Levels, BTECs or a mixture of both.
If you achieve at least 5 GCSEs at grades 9 – 4 you will qualify for a Level 3 study programme.
GCSE qualifications are most suitable for Level 3 study. A lack of GCSE English Language at grade 4 will significantly restrict study programme options. Equivalent qualifications at Level 2 in vocational courses are accepted where they are related to the course which has been applied for. However, these courses are not adequate for entry alone for an Advanced Study Programme and would always need to be accompanied by an appropriate range of GCSEs.
