Progression from Year 12 to Year 13
The majority of courses followed in the Sixth Form are studied over two years, typically starting in Year 12 and being completed in Year 13.
Year 12 students will not take “formal” Threshold Exams this year. In these circumstances, progression to Year 13 will be on the basis of internal assessment. Year 12 end of year exams are scheduled to take place by way of distance learning. A letter explaining the process can be downloaded here.
At the end of the first year of study, most students will take internal Threshold Exams to ensure their suitability to progress to the second year of their courses. Grades achieved in these exams will be used in the process of determining potential grades for UCAS applications.
