The Sixth Form College, Solihull offers a wide range of Level 3 courses, with A Level, BTEC and Technical Level 3 courses on offer for students to choose.
You have choices! Below are the three programmes of study you can apply for:
- 3 A Level subjects
- 4 A level subjects
- 1 BTEC National Diploma (2 A level equivalent), plus 1 A level
- 1 BTEC Extended/Technical Level 3 Diploma (3 A level equivalent)
All our courses are 2-year full-time courses. Those courses in our A levels list must be studied as part of a 3/4 subject programme of study; those in the BTEC National Diploma list should be combined with one A level subject; and those in the BTEC Extended/Technical Level 3 Diploma list are equivalent to studying three A Levels on their own, so only a single course should be selected. See our 16-19 Study Programme Requirements.
We have three standard entry options (3 A levels, 1 BTEC National Diploma with 1 A level or 1 BTEC Extended/Technical Level 3 Diploma), but our most able and ambitious of students (usually with at least 5 A/A* grades at GCSE) may wish to study 4 subjects at A Level. This will often include students who choose to study A Level Mathematics with Further Maths. Students must commit to four subjects for the full two years. There are Entry Requirements that students must achieve whatever programme of study they select.
Learn more about these different qualifications, as well as the significant changes that are taking place in education nationwide by reading our A levels and Applied Courses pages. If you require any further curriculum information please contact the Admissions Office on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Specific information on what is taught in each of our courses is available via our individual course pages. These pages include downloadable PDF leaflets with case studies and exam results for each course.
You can also read about the Specialist Academies we run, which are enrichment options linked to particular courses or careers. These are enrichments and do not form the main part of a students’ programme of study, but they can significantly boost their university and career progression opportunities.
Ofqual has now published the Ofqual Student Guide 2023. The guide covers GCSEs, AS, A levels, other general qualifications, and vocational and technical qualifications and explains how grades will be awarded this year. There is also a condensed version available in HTML and PDF format.
