  • You enjoy reading and carrying out research
  • You have the ability to work in a team
  • You enjoy written, classroom-based tasks
  • You are self-motivated
  • You are well organised when planning work and meeting deadlines
  • You enjoy creating extended pieces of writing.

Choose Wisely

Studying any subject at A-level is a major step up from GCSE. It demands greater commitment, hard work, and perseverance: you will be stretched and challenged.

When choosing your A-level subjects, you should think carefully about:

  • Subjects you have a genuine passion for: if you are interested in the subjects you choose then you are more likely to do well in them
  • Subjects you will need: for certain university courses or careers you will be required to have one or more specific A-level subjects for entry.

Why choose Derby College?

  • Our A-level learners have an excellent track record. A 98% pass rate overall and the majority of A2 subjects recording a 100% pass rate including Humanities and Modern Foreign Language subjects.
  • The majority of our A-level learners secure places at their first or second choice universities. We have strong links with universities which will help you set your long-term goals: you can even take higher education courses at the College itself.
  • You can choose exciting subjects which may not appear on conventional school timetables, such as World Development and Film Studies.
  • You’ll study in our exceptional facilities at the Joseph Wright Campus, which has just been upgraded with a new £3.1 million extension.
  • If a university is not for you, we offer clear routes into employment or an apprenticeship. We have close partnerships with over 1,000 employers to give you a real head start.

A-levels are changing

Changes to A-levels are being introduced nationally and will be phased in over the next three years. This has an impact on the way your A-level course at Derby College will be structured and assessed.

The key change is that A-levels will become ‘linear’ courses so you will need to study for the full two years to gain your qualification and exams will be undertaken at the end of those two years rather than being spread out.

These new-style linear A-levels will be introduced in phases up to 2017.

BTEC qualifications

We also offer a range of BTECs for those learners who might prefer a more vocational, work-related course alongside or in place of A-levels. Highly respected across many sectors, BTECs are designed to meet the specific needs of employers and professional bodies as well as paving the way to higher education.

On a BTEC, you’ll take a practical approach to learning and will have the opportunity to focus on real-world, work-related scenarios. The way you are assessed will center more on coursework and practical projects than on traditional exams.
