Sixth Form Courses

RES Sixth Form College subject/course options


At RES Sixth Form College, we offer students a broad and flexible range of options. Here are the main points you need to know about the subjects and courses we offer.


  • From September 2017 the vast majority of A-level subjects are now linear. This means that all examinations are sat at the end of a students two year course.
  • Examinations will be sat at the end of the first year of study and if successfully completed will allow students to progress to the second year of the A-level course. Pass grades are A-E and this is the minimum requirement for progression on most cases.
  • Each Level 3 BTEC course is equivalent to one A-level. A full triple award Level 3 BTEC course is equivalent to 3 A-levels in terms of the programme of study and a double award is equivalent to 2 A-levels.
  • Level 2 courses are the equivalent of GCSEs.

To provide flexibility in what we offer and cater to students varying strengths and needs, students can choose to follow one of three pathways.


A Level Pathway - For students wishing to take three or four A-levels. This pathway is accessible to students who have achieved a minimum of five A*-C GCSE grades including English and Mathematics.

BTEC L3 Pathway - For students wishing to take three Level 3 BTEC courses. This pathway is accessible to students that have achieved a minimum of five A*-C GCSE grades regardless of subjects.

Mixed L3 Pathway - For students wishing to take A-levels and BTEC Level 3 courses. This pathway is accessible to students that have achieved a minimum of five A*-C GCSE grades regardless of subjects.
