A Level and GCSE Subjects


Gower College Swansea offers around 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 and external assessment usually takes place at the end of the first year. The second year of study is the A2 year and also involves external examinations to gain the full A Level award.

It may also be possible to start a new AS subject in the second year of study.

We also offer a range of GCSEs on a part time basis. Students can re-sit GCSE English, Maths and Science usually within the first year of their course.

In 2022, the overall A Level pass rate was 99%. Of these passes, 42% were at grades A*- A, 70% were at A*- B and 87% were at A*- C. The overall pass rate at AS Level was 94%.

The College’s vocational results are also strong this year, with 44% of Level 3 Extended Diploma students achieving at least one Distinction.
