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.

Emma Young, Principal of the College, said:-

“We are very proud of the achievements of all of our students. These results are some of the best ever at the College and I want to congratulate every student on their success and hard work. I also want to congratulate our wonderful teaching staff, whose expertise and dedication is pivotal in the success we are celebrating today.  We also shouldn’t forget the role played by whole College community, support staff, Trustees, as well as parents, carers and friends, all of whom help students through the pressure of coursework and exams.  The focus today is inevitably about results but we must also acknowledge for some students, who have faced personal challenges such as ill health, just to get through the two years is an achievement. We are proud that our students leave Godalming not only with qualifications but with a love of learning and a confidence to face their next step. We wish all our students all the very best for the future, whatever path they choose, be that university, a gap year or employment.”
