St.Colman's currently offers a number of qualifications to post-16 students.
AS - This is a one year modular course composed of two or three units. Most courses are assessed by examination or coursework or a combination of both. This is graded from A-E.
A2 - In the second year you take two or three units and are awarded the full A level which is graded from A*-E.
This level 3 qualification is mostly coursework based and is graded as Pass / Merit / Distinction which has equivalencies to A level grades and UCAS points.
This option offers a vocational route and a more enjoyable route for those who prefer a portfolio based course without formal examinations. Some pupils benefit greatly from opting for vocational courses as this raises their level of achievement.
If you enjoy a course and are confident that it matches your interest and suits your learning style then there is every chance that you will excel.
Entry to University courses can be gained by presenting high levels of achievement in a range of Level 3 qualifications. These include BTECs qualifications.
Please select either AS/A Level or B.Tech from the menu on the left hand side to access further information about each particular subject / course.
