A Levels

Exeter College offers over 40 A Level subjects in traditional GCSE subjects like Maths, Biology, English and History as well as new subjects like Psychology, Law and Film Studies. Most students choose 3 or 4 A Level subjects in the first year (AS Level) and then continue with 3 into the second year (A2 Level). There are exams and coursework throughout the course.

Any A Level subject can be combined, though we will advise you if we think the combination you choose may make it difficult for you to succeed. A Levels can also be studied alongside a BTEC Level 3 Certificate. Please note, A Levels are currently subject to a Government review – please keep checking the website for up to date information.

What our students are saying

As far as teachers are concerned, I did find them very involved and passionate in their teaching, trying to make students take part and making sure no one was lost
