What are Applied A levels

If your strengths lie more in course work than in exams, consider studying Applied A levels this Autumn.

Applied A levels (also referred to as Extended Certificates) are the equivalent to an A level but they are assessed on 50% or more course work, depending on the subject. This is perfect for students who find exams more challenging and are stronger in their course work. 

Students can either take 3 Applied A levels or combine them with standard A levels. They are recognised by universities but if you know what course and university you want to study at later you will need to check to see if they require at least one standard A level qualification.
