APPLYING TO KHS SIXTH FORM

Before applying online

How many A-Level subjects should you take?

  • You only need to study three A Levels or BTEC Nationals equivalent to three A Levels.
  • You may study four A Levels, especially with Further Maths and if you are unsure which three to study and wish to drop one throughout Year 12.

Studying Btec Nationals

  • Nearly 25% of students at university achieved their place by studying vocational courses such as Btec Nationals.
  • Btec Nationals are equivalent to A Levels and are awarded as Pass; Merit; Distinction, Distinction*
  • Btec National Certificate in Information Technology is equivalent to one A Level.
  • Btec National Diploma in Business is equivalent to two A Levels, so you will need to study another A Level or Btec Certificate to make it equivalent to three A Levels.
  • Btec National Extended Diploma in Applied Science or Health and Social Care or Informational Technology are each equivalent to three A Levels so you only take one of these courses and that will allow you to progress to university.
  • We also offer a Cambridge Technical in Art which is equivalent to 1 A Level. It is a qualification very similar to a Btec National Certificate except our teachers find that our students prefer this art course to a Btec art course.

Does KHS Sixth Form only offer A-Levels and Btec courses?

  • Yes – we offer Level 3 courses (A Levels and Btec Nationals).
  • The Sixth Form does not offer GCSE or Level 2 programmes.
