After you apply, you will be invited to an informal interview to talk about your subject choices and why you want to join The Ridgeway Sixth Form College.
Students are required to have at least grade 5 in 4 or more subjects. Students should additionally achieve the required entry grade for each subject they wish to study. All entries to courses are at the discretion of the R6 leaders.
The table below explains how many grades you need in order to take varying amounts of subjects. We recommend students choose 3 ‘A’ Levels or equivalent (or 4 if including Further Maths). This course of study may then be enhanced by either the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) or Core Maths Qualification.
