A Levels


Based at the Gorseinon Campus, the College offers almost 40 A Level subjects, many of which are not offered at GCSE.

In all A Level subjects, the first year of study is known as the AS Level (usually makes up 40% of the full A Level award) and external examinations  usually take place at the end of the first year. The second year of study is the A2 year which usually makes up 60% of the full A Level award and involves external examinations. It may also be possible to start a new AS subject in the second year of study.

In 2023, 82% of our students achieved the grades they needed to progress to their first choice university (the UK national average was 79%). This includes 152 students who have secured places at one of the Russell Group universities. View all A Level results.

Linear delivery

If you choose to take one of these A Level subjects:
Accounting, Classics, Geology, Music Technology, Dance, Ancient History, Electronics
Make sure you ask about linear delivery at your interview. Linear delivery means that you might not have the option of taking an AS exam at the end of your first year.

Tutorial support

You will be allocated a personal tutor to help monitor your academic progress. You can attend group tutorial sessions which include talks from guest speakers, enterprise activities, career guidance and UCAS application help.

GCSE resists

Don’t worry if you didn’t get the grades for English, Mathematics, Science or Welsh (First Language), you can resit these in your first year.
