Since finishing the IB and leaving Felsted I have continued to stretch myself academically. At the time of writing, I have just reached the half way point of a Classics degree at the University of Cambridge - how the time has flown!
Sixth Form Curriculum
Choosing the right route for you
At Felsted we support both the IB Diploma and A Level pathways as we believe they offer a strong curriculum for different types of learner.
Both pathways should be considered by sixth form pupils as common misconceptions can often deter pupils from following a course that might be best suited to them.
Emma is currently studying A Levels in Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths. As a student with a top all round academic ability, Emma was quite focused on the subjects she wanted to continue studying, with a view to reading Veterinary Science at a top university next year.
Matt studied A Levels in Geography, Physics, Maths and Further Maths. With a sister who completed the IB Diploma with great success, Matt decided against a similar route as he wanted to specialise in a certain area of subjects, with a clearer aim of university study. He hopes to study Geography at Durham.
As an academic and music scholar Josh wanted to keep his options open, with a view to studying PPE at a top university next year. From a family with a rich international outlook the IB appealed to him in its approach and the ability to continue learning an additional language.
Amber achieved 39 points in the IB Diploma and not only received an unconditional offer to read International Business with French at Birmingham but also some good offers from St Andrews, Warwick, Bath and Newcastle universities.
