Curriculum and Courses

Choosing the right courses is essential to success in the Sixth Form. For some students, this will be easy, as your talents lie in a particular area of the curriculum. But for others there could be a range of subjects, all of which appeal to you.

When you choose Sixth Form at Romero’s, a member of staff will talk with you about your higher education and/ or employment aspirations, then advise you about suitable courses in the Sixth Form. Nevertheless, this task is a shared one: if you have a particular university course in mind, then look at the entry requirements for a number of universities.

Anyone wanting to study medicine, for example, will need A Levels in subjects like chemistry, biology and mathematics. If the course is less prescriptive – law, for example – then consider the sort of subjects in which you can demonstrate logical thinking, good communication skills or the ability to evaluate evidence.

Remember too that some courses are so oversubscribed that even having three A grades might not be enough to secure a place – so choosing a subject which you like, but do not usually score very highly in, could damage your chances of getting in.

These are exactly the kind of issues and options we will discuss with you before you make your final choice and we look forward to these conversations.
