All Level 3 courses offer direct progression to university
A Levels and BTEC Level 3 Diplomas and Subsidiary Diplomas are equally recognised by UCAS and are equivalent in UCAS Tariff points. We recommend that you check the entry criteria for specific courses of interest before selecting your Year 13 options, as some courses ask for specific subjects, qualification types, GCSE, AS/A2 grades. Up-to-date information is available on university and UCAS websites. The UCAS Get Started button provides provides links to a number of helpful information resources that you may find helpful.
This choice is widened further through our consortium partner Belfast Model School for Girls (BMSG) and the Area Learning Community (ALC). BMSG choices are offered to pupils with 30+ points.
