A Level Curriculum

At Felsted, pupils following the A Level/BTEC route will usually study 3 subjects and supplement this with the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

Should pupils wish to take four A Levels (for example, pupils wishing to take Maths and Further Maths), we will consider their requests carefully.

Our curriculum is designed as a two year course, it is not possible for pupils to choose 4 subjects initially with the intention of dropping one later on.

Extended Project Qualification

The EPQ serves to enrich and extend a student’s academic performance by enabling them to ‘learn how to learn’. A completed project carries with it, not only significant UCAS points (slightly more than an AS qualification), but also material to discuss when applying for a course, apprenticeship or work placement. Many universities value EPQ owing to the independent study skills it develops, with some reducing offers for an A/A* EPQ.
