Choosing 3 A-Levels to be completed over a two-year period
Aldridge School have decided that it is in the best interests of our students that they choose and successfully complete 3 A Level qualifications over a two-year period.
This decision was taken with the best interests of our students in mind for a number of important reasons:
1. The top performing Russell Group Universities only require 3 good A level results. Completing 4 A level courses is not seen in any way an advantage.
2. Choosing 4 AS level courses would result in the students retaking the AS examinations at the end of the two years in all 3 subjects, along with the A level examinations. This would result in students taking a large number of examinations over a short period of time.
3. Moving totally away from the AS model, still retains the breath of choice, but does not put undue pressure on the students, in taking 4 AS qualifications and making less than informed choices on which subject to drop early on in year 12.
The provision of good Information Advice and Guidance during the run up to making appropriate A level course choices is at the forefront of the application process.
