You can pick and choose from our wide range of A-Levels, certificates and diplomas to ensure you achieve the best qualifications to progress on to university or work. We recommend you choose up to four subjects.

A-Levels
A-Levels are academic, examination-based qualifications recognised as a traditional qualification to gain entry to universities and higher education. A-Levels focus mainly on academic subjects and qualify for UCAS points.

Certificates and Diplomas
Certificates and diplomas are equivalent to A-Levels but are assessed through coursework and some examinations. Certificates and diplomas enable you to qualify for UCAS points or go on to a higher apprenticeship or employment.
