Advanced Study Programme (Level 3)
You are able to choose an Advanced Study Programme that is individualised to suit your interests and abilities. It will provide you with the knowledge skills and experiences to progress successfully to university, an apprenticeship or employment.
Your Advanced Study Programme (Level 3) will typically consist of 3 core subjects +1 additional option. In the first year this might be an AS course progression option or enrichment such as sport, music or drama.
In the second year your +1 might be a progression option such as The Extended Project Qualification , Arts Award, Core Maths or a Sports Leaders Award.
GCSE qualifications are most suitable for Level 3 study. A lack of GCSE English Language at grade 4 will significantly restrict study programme options. Equivalent qualifications at Level 2 in vocational courses are accepted, provided they are related to the course which has been applied for. However, theses courses are not adequate for entry alone for an Advanced Study Programme and would always need to be accompanied by an appropriate range of GCSEs.
What is an Advanced (Level 3) Qualification
At Godalming College we offer A Levels, Pre-U and BTEC Nationals. They attract UCAS points for university and are useful to provide evidence of advanced level study for employers and apprenticeship providers.
Advanced (Level 3) Entry Requirements
If you achieve at least 5 GCSEs at grade 9-4 you will qualify for study on a Level 3 programme. GCSEs are the most suitable qualifications for study at this level. See individual course for additional entry requirements in some subjects.
