Information for University Admissions - 2017 Entry

Students studying a post 16 study programme from 2015-2017 at Churchill Academy and Sixth Form take a standard programme of four AS levels in Year 12 reducing to three A levels in Year 13.  External AS exams were taken by all students, on both old and new specifications.  The Extended Project Qualification was available for students to take as an enrichment programme.  The Academy offers a broad range of A levels (see below) allowing students to create a personalised pathway in a range of subjects.  Whilst still in the early phase of A level reform, with the majority of subjects still being examined at AS, following UCAS advice and information released from HE institutions we agreed that the right course for our students (2015-17) was to adopt a policy of AS level exams in all subjects, thus achieving as much consistency as possible in a time of staggered change.  The aim of the strategy was to achieve consistency and equality of opportunity, along with accuracy in measuring pupil performance at mid-point in their Post 16 studies, ensuring that there was a relatively comparable point of comparison in end of Year 12 achievement and decision making about which subject to drop, accuracy in UCAS predicted grades and avoiding unnecessary confusion amongst students and parents.  The decision was made in the wider context of North Somerset, where all Post 16 providers agreed upon a similar position for that year in order to maintain consistency across the area.
