Courses in the Sixth Form require a high level of intellectual ability and commitment to work; it is paramount that students select courses that are appropriate to their ability.
A good guide to identify the most suitable pathway is to use the GCSE total point score (TPS) system; this gives a true reflection of a student’s current ability and has proved a reliable tool in deciding on the correct courses.
- Have a minimum TPS of 32
- Meet the subject specific entry criteria
- Have a full programme of study, this entails 3 or 4 Level 3 qualifications (A level courses or equivalent)
|GCSES WITH OLD LETTER GRADING||BTEC||GCSES WITH NEW NUMBER GRADING|
To work out your TPS, add up your best 8 grades (including Maths and English Language)
