At Wychwood we follow linear specifications to allow the girls consistently to focus on building their depth of knowledge, understanding, skills and examination technique and to gain as much maturity of expression, analysis and evaluation as possible before taking the A Level examinations.
BTEC (Business and Technology Education Council) qualifications are a series of career-based courses designed to supply students with the skills they need to progress on to either higher education or straight into employment.
The content in these courses is based around national occupational standards that professionals in a particular vocation must follow. It is possible to study BTEC courses by themselves, or combined alongside A Level qualifications. BTEC Level three qualifications at Distinction carry the same weight with universities as an A* at A Level.
