Choosing what to study at Woodhouse
College will provide you with a broad and challenging educational
experience that meets your individual needs and aspirations.
- Most students study three A level subjects. A few will take four subjects. A levels are two-year courses, and students no longer drop a subject when they go into Year 13.
- Universities are interested only in three A level grades, and there is no advantage in taking four subjects. The only exception to this is a few of the medical schools.
- A level Further Maths is only available as part of a four A level combination which includes Maths and Further Maths.
- As part of ‘Woodhouse Plus’, students will have the option of a number of other courses, some of which (like the extended project) lead to qualifications.
At the end
of your first year you will take internal exams in each of the subjects you
have been studying. Progression into the second year will be dependent
upon attendance, behaviour and academic progress. Some
thoughts on how to choose your A level subjects can be found here.
