Designed for adults, the course will provide the opportunity to achieve an equivalence of 3 ‘A’ levels so that you can progress to higher level courses in further education or to university. You will have to commit to a high degree of independent study and reading, studying up to nine subjects, four are compulsory (five if you don’t hold a GCSE Grade C in Mathematics) and four are chosen by you from a range of available options. Students should preferably have a GCSE English Grade C or equivalent, and will also be asked to demonstrate a level of literacy and numeracy.
