A-Levels & Level 3 qualifications
A-Levels are academic, examination-based qualifications recognised as a traditional qualification to gain entry to universities and higher education. A-Levels focus mainly on academic subjects and qualify for UCAS points (maximum 140 points per A-Level).
Certificates and Diplomas are equivalent to A-Levels but are assessed through coursework rather than examinations. Certificates and Diplomas enable you to go on to university, a Higher Apprenticeship or employment. The Bedford Sixth Form currently offers certificate and diploma courses that are either 60 credits (equivalent to one A-Level) or 120 credits (equivalent to two A-Levels).
You only need to apply once - just tell us within the application your preferred combination of subjects. If you need help you can call us on 01234 291291 or email us.
