A Levels will suit you if you perform well in exams, you want to study a range of subjects or if you know that you want to follow a particular career path or study a particular subject at university. A Levels are two year courses with the whole of the course assessed through exams at the end of the two years. A Levels are mostly assessed by exams though some A Levels include coursework.

A Level Computer Science (Mathematics, Physics)
Previous Institution: Ercall Wood Technology College
I want to complete a Physics degree after college and the subjects that Shrewsbury Colleges Group offer will help me to achieve that. Computer Science will help with this, as a lot of programming is involved. It is really interesting to learn how computers work.
A Level Politics (Law and Religious Studies)
Previous school: Priory School
I’m interested in Law and how the government works and I want to join the police after College, so Politics was a great A Level for me to do. I enjoy learning about how voting behaviours have changed through time. Politics is a rewarding subject that can be frequently used in your everyday life.
A Level Sociology (Business, Photography)
Previous school: The Priory School
I thought Sociology A Level sounded really interesting. I want to go into Nursing after College and it will really help me achieve that. I enjoyed learning about sociological methods. Sociology helps you to have an open mind and see things from different perspectives. Sociology is a relevant and interesting subject. I will be continuing it at university, but not sure what I want to specialise in yet, I just know I want to work in Sociology. The teaching is good, and relevant to current situations in the world and you learn skills that you can transfer over to other subjects. I have enjoyed learning about crime sociology the most – why crimes are committed and how authorities react.
A Level Geography (Business BTEC and ICT BTEC)
Previous school: Mary Webb School
Geography is a really interesting subject and you can have fun studying it here. You get the independence to do your own field work, but the teachers will take the time to help you out if you need it. It’s so different to GCSE Geography, you look at things differently and experience more.
A Level Drama & Theatre Studies (Music and Film Studies)
Previous Institution: Idsall School
I love Drama and it is the field I want my future career to be in. A Level Drama is confidence building and eye opening and I have had a really great first year. I am looking into acting on stage and screen after College. My favourite thing this year has been learning Brecht techniques.
