Further Education System in UK
When ever students reach at the age of 16 then they should have completed their GCSE’s because according to their Law the GCSE’s should be completed at the age of 16. One thing is also very important that when students reach at the age of 16 then have to choose few options for their best life that are
- Academic Qualifications.
- Vocational Qualifications.
- Find Work to earn something.
When students want to continue their education then they can continue their education by pursuing further academic qualifications or can continue their life by following more vocational pathways.
In the UK most of the schools have 6th form to every student to enter after they have taken their GCSE’s. There are many different 6th form colleges that will offer the same courses that others colleges with no 6th form offer. In the 6th form colleges students study mostly A-Level to continue their further academic qualification that are required to students when they enter to higher education or when they enter to any degree program. Basically the A-Levels like the GCSE’s will follow a two years program and usually there are two types of components for them that are full A-levels and half AS-levels. Mostly the A-level always comprise of the 6 modules and also an AS-level 3 module for students.
Generally students mostly take between two or three A-levels but always depend on their academic abilities and drives that help them to take more and the students from any area of the UK can take up to 5 A-levels.
