12th Grade Options (Provisional, September 2013)These options have been chosen to ensure that as many students as possible can do the subjects which they have informed us they would like to take. The options may be altered if choices change as a result of the IGCSE results.
Students must choose one subject from each of the options below. Students must have gained a B grade pass or above at IGCSE/GCSE/O Level or equivalent to be eligible to choose AS subjects. Students gaining a C grade pass, in an extended subject, may be eligible to join an existing class.
Students studying three or more AS subjects may choose to have a block of study periods instead of a fifth subject.
The alternatives to the AS subjects are school based 'diploma' subjects. They cover a wide range of skills leading towards the school diploma and are not examined externally. The school reserves the right to alter the non AS level subjects. Students may take a mixture of AS and 'diploma' subjects. AS subjects will also contribute towards the diploma. AS subjects are more demanding and will be weighted more heavily than the non AS subjects.
