The following pages outline the subjects available at Dudley Sixth. All students study three or four subjects. To be in with a chance of joining is in September 2017 you are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
To study A levels, you will require a minimum of 5 GCSEs including two at grade B and three at grade C. English language must be at a minimum of grade 4.
Individual subjects may have specific entry requirements (see courses for details).
We are committed to improving your English and maths skills while you are learning with us. You will have the opportunity to study English and/or maths as part of your main programme of study and all of your teachers will help you develop these skills throughout your time with us. If you do not have a GCSE (grade 4 or above) in English or maths then these subjects will be an integral part of your course.
Our aim is to get every student who studies here to achieve GCSEs in English and maths (grade 4). However, we do recognise that not all students will be ready to take a GCSE when they start their programme and for this reason we have developed a progression route to help them along the way.
Please note that qualifications are currently under review with many awarding bodies. Therefore the course content and assessment for some of the qualifications may change by September 2017.
Dudley Sixth College students have again excelled in their A Level studies, with an overall pass rate of 98% showing a consistent picture with last year’s results. With more than 1400 individual entries with a high percentage of them achieving higher grades.
