Linear A Levels
In 2018/19, you will take AS exams at the end of the first year of study, and then your final exams at the end of your second year. Linear A-levels means that your final grade will be what you achieve in your final exams at the end of your 2nd year. All our A Levels will be taught in the new linear framework with exams ONLY at the end of your second year of study from the academic year 2019/20.
On the right is our full range of A Level subjects for you to read about. At interview we will help guide you to select the best package of subjects dependent on your university or career progression aim.
“The journey from having no qualifications at all, to having three A*s and a place at Oxford has been both surprising and exhilarating. Perhaps I am biased but I truly believe that BSix is the best sixth form college in the country!”
What Ofsted had to say
“Teachers prepare students thoroughly for higher education. A high proportion of A-level students study at university on completion of their programme and go to their university of first choice.”
