Subject Information

Every year, 100s of 16-19 year olds choose Bridgwater College as the place for their AS/A Level studies. We currently offer more subjects than a traditional school sixth form can provide, and a broader choice than is available at many other colleges. We also offer subjects you may not have had the chance to study before, and the chance to combine AS/A Levels with vocational qualifications.

Most students choose to study four AS Levels in the first year and continue three of those to complete the full A Level in the second year. Make sure to bear this in mind when completing your application. You don't necessarily need to have studied the subject at GCSE level to take it at AS/A Level.

Why choose AS/A Levels?

A Levels demand more individual, in-depth study than GCSEs, are the main route into higher education and are universally recognised by employers. They will provide you with an in-depth knowledge of your chosen subjects and will help you develop a range of transferable skills, such as analysis, composition, extended writing and an increased understanding of the quality of research, plus relevant practical skills within each subject.

Academic Scholarship

In order to continue to attract the most gifted and talented students to Bridgwater College, we have recently introduced the Bridgwater College Academic Scholarship Programme.

This is an exciting opportunity, aimed at high achieving young people wanting to progress to high ranking universities, conservatoires or medical schools and are only available to students of Bridgwater College who are under 19 on August 31 on their year of enrolment.

AS & A Levels Student Sami Kawu

Sami Kawu

During my time at College my confidence has improved significantly. This is particularly important to me as I want to go on to study Medicine at university, it’s a competitive course to get on to and so I need to be confident in my own abilities in order to secure a place.”

Former pupil of Kings of Wessex School in Cheddar, Sami is taking a gap year and going travelling before going to university to study Medicine. He studied A Levels in Biology, Maths and Chemistry.

Getting good exam results at AS Level has definitely helped me this year — knowing that getting into a top university was possible. With this motivation and the help of staff, providing additional revision resources and guidance about university choices, I hope to replicate my success this year!”

Former pupil of Worle Community School in Weston-super- Mare, is going to study History at Cardiff University. She studied A Levels in English Literature, Law, Modern History and an AS Level in French.
