Entry Requirements + Subjects offered
Entry is based on your GCSE results. To study 3 A levels at KWS, the entry requirement is an Average Point Score (APS) of 4.5 or above. In order to calculate your APS, you can discount any lower grades and focus on the highest scoring 8 GCSE results. A Grade 9 is worth 9 points etc. So your average points scored for your top 8 GCSE results would be all the points added together divided by 8. You need to include maths and English grades as these cannot be discounted.
Average Point Score (APS)
Students tend to excel at subjects they enjoy and enjoy the subjects they do well at. So the first steps in decision making are based around what subjects you enjoy and do well at. Next, think about what you may wish to do beyond Post 16 and work back. Some careers and future study options may require specific subjects to have been studied at Post 16 level. Please avoid the temptation of selecting courses that your friends are taking or that a favourite teacher intends to teach. Friends and teachers change, but your subject selection locks you into a study programme that cannot change. Remember, it is essential to reflect on your interests, strengths and long-term goals when making any decisions about your future. Please seek guidance from staff, family and careers advisers to make informed choices that align with your future aspirations.
