Introduction from Head of Upper School: Mr S. Jaggard
Welcome to St. George’s Sixth Form. Pupils entering Sixth Form are embarking on the last stage of their educational journey be-
fore entering University. St. George’s offers Sixth Form pupils a choice of curricula to achieve entrance to Further Education - GCE
(A-Level) or International Baccalaureate (IB). Pupils should make sure they are acquainted with the full range of options available
to them and the implications of choices made at this stage in their educational progress. It Is therefore essential that this booklet is
read in conjunction with
The St. George’s Guide to University Entrance
The St. George’s Guide to IB
The St. George’s F12 Option Choices Form

Pupils should also consult the following websites for career advice
http://careersadvice.direct.gov.uk/
http://www.connexions-direct.com

This booklet is set out with individual subject content guides, giving an overview of what will be studied with five introductory
questions pupils should ask themselves before making an informed choice:

What do I need to know or be able to do before taking this course?

What will I learn on this GCE course?

What kind of pupil is this course suitable for?

With which other subjects does this combine well ?

For which careers is this subject suitable ?


Sixth Form GCE-A-Level Curriculum

Choosing a Course

Pupils choosing the GCE (A Level) curriculum should choose 3-4 subjects from the Subject Option Choice table at the end of this
booklet. These subjects will form the basis of their education over the next two years.

General Structure

The New British GCE Curriculum introduced in 2008, brings with it a new style of examination structure.
This booklet will provide you with details of the AS and A level courses available to you at St Georges and the possible combina-
tions to choose from.
You should consider the choice of subjects available carefully, and your general level of academic ability, in order to find the pro-
gramme of study that will suit your individual needs. You will want to discuss your plans with your parents, your subject teachers,
your Form Teachers and Head of Department
The Head of Upper School will discuss your provisional choice of subjects with you individually, before they are finalised.

In all subjects the new A Level comprises of four or six modules, the first two/three at Advanced Subsidiary (AS) and the subse-
quent two/three at A Level (A2).
Each module is assessed through external examination and, in some subjects, through internal coursework.
AS modules are assessed at a standard halfway to A Level and A2 assessments are at full A Level standard.
The final A2 examinations contain a statutory synoptic element (minimum 20%) which assesses knowledge, understanding and
skills gained throughout the course as a whole.
The AS qualification counts as 50% of the full A Level and pupils may finish the course after two/ three modules with certifica-
tion at AS Level. Alternatively, pupils may continue the subject by studying the three A2 modules to gain the further 50% that
makes up the full A Level qualification.
Grades awarded at both AS and A2 will be A to E, with U as ungraded. Marks will be given for individual modules and modules
can be retaken.
Most module examinations are taken in June of each academic year. However some modules may be attempted in January, al-
lowing successful candidates to focus a smaller number of examinations in the Summer.
Particular to St. George’s is the fact that all pupils entering the sixth form must take part in a residential induction weekend at the
start of the course.
In addition a ‘Thinking Skills’ course may be offered to AS pupils wishing to prepare for LNAT/BMAT/UKCAT entrance exami-
nations.
