North Hertfordshire College students achieved excellent results in 2012 with a 100% pass rate in Maths, English Literature, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Law, Media Studies and Sociology, and an overall pass rate of 98%.
A Levels are a two year programme, in which successful completion of the first year leads to a qualification at AS Level. In order to achieve the full A Level, students must successfully complete the full 2 years of study.
A Level study at NHC is a great preparation for both university and the world of work. You can look forward to studying in a friendly atmosphere with excellent facilities and resources. Tutorials are an integral part of the AS and A Level programme and, as such, each full-time student is allocated a personal tutor who will monitor their academic progress and offer advice and guidance to help the student achieve the best possible results. All students will undertake employability skills and enrichment activities and receive guidance on opportunities in higher education and employment.
At NHC we offer a wide range of A Level subjects. We also work with local secondary schools and so you may be able to study a subject that we do not offer at college through them.
To study A Levels at NHC, you need to have a minimum of five GCSEs at grade C or above, including English and Mathematics. Study of AS Levels also requires the achievement of specific subjects and grades at GCSE, and you will be advised about this during your interview and at enrolment.
