Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College offers a wide range of academic subjects at A Level, and we work with each of our prospective students to construct a programme of study that suits their needs and aspirations. The majority of students opt to study three A Level courses, as this is all that is required for entry to even the most prestigious universities. You will, however, be supported to study four A Level courses if you have the ability and the desire to do so. Please note that all A Level courses are rigorous, academically challenging and time-consuming, and we encourage you to consider your options carefully before making your final choices.
The A Levels we offer require high standards of attainment at GCSE level or the equivalent. As a general rule, you must gain a Level 6 grade at GCSE in the subjects you wish to pursue at A Level, although the STEM subjects that we offer (Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics) have a higher entry requirement of a Level 7, which reflects the challenge of these courses. If you have not studied a subject at GCSE level, we will look closely at your grades in any related courses, and your overall academic profile. We welcome any enquiries you may have regarding entry requirements for our courses. Please also see the individual subject information for further details.
