What is it like to study this course and how will I be assessed?
This course is unique in the UK because it enables you to gain four full GCSEs in a year. You will study three mandatory subjects and will be able to choose a fourth subject.
You will be taught through lectures, group work, teamwork plus individual study. Fast Track is a highly supportive course, which encourages independent learning. Assessment takes a number of different formats for example: presentations, practical work plus final exams in May and June. You are expected to work independently in your free time to complete additional work which will enable you be successful. You will have your own personal tutor and you will be part of a tutor group.
An individual timetable is compiled around mandatory subjects of GCSE Maths and English plus GCSE Sociology.
In addition to this core programme you will have the opportunity to choose one option from the following:
- GCSE Art
- GCSE Drama
- GCSE Citizenship
- GCSE Religious Studies
You may have the opportunity to access mainstream GCSEs within Exeter College if you already have prior knowledge/experience of the subject or at least a grade 3 or above in GCSE English or Maths.
