Birmingham - A Level Courses

MPW offers a comprehensive suite of A level options with 26 different subjects offered over six different course durations (including retake durations) and with no restrictions on combinations of subjects or course lengths.

One-Year A Level Courses

Students on one-year A level courses at MPW typically have previous experience of sixth-form work, or equivalent, but may well be taking one or more fresh subjects from scratch. We provide comprehensive advice at interview on the fit between various subject options and the rest of a student’s academic profile and university aspirations.

One-year course structure

Students may choose from the full list of 26 A level subjects on offer and, as with all MPW courses, may study any subject alongside any other over any course duration. One-year courses are often taken in association with either longer or shorter courses depending on the student profile. The courses are self-contained, covering the whole of the syllabus and are both more intensive as well as being run entirely separately from the second year of our two-year programme. Students should be prepared for a demanding workload in which the pace of syllabus coverage is faster, the homework volumes greater and the supervised exam practice sessions more frequent.
