Course Overview

AQA Qualification Code: 7408

WJEC Qualification Code: 1420QS

Swansea College has created a new programme for A Level Science.

This programme is intended for students who may wish to improve their subject knowledge or who may want to gain a qualification in A-Level Biology, A-Level Chemistry, and/or A-Level Physics.
Our teachers are happy to help support your educational journey!

Additional Benefits for A Level Physics Plus Course

  • Online course
  • Email support with subject tutor
  • 2 online mock assessments
  • Predicted results
  • Reference
  • UCAS application support
We are able to offer plus option as long as there are 2 students or more taking the course.

The Classroom Environment

Our online/in-person classes are small making learning more accessible for learners and gives the classroom environment a calm atmosphere to learn. Having a limited number of students in the classroom gives the students more one-on-one time with their teacher, for teachers to review students’ work, to provide feedback on what went well, and how to improve students’ work for the future.

About our teachers

Our teachers are enthusiastic about learning. Teachers will support students towards their individual pathways in education. Whether the student wishes to understand more subject knowledge if the student wishes to gain their qualification in A-Level Biology, A-Level Chemistry, and/or A-Level Physics. Our teachers are here to help!

When will the programme take place?

Our programme will take place  as  online live classes 3 hours per week  The course duration is over 20 during the whole academic year.
20 weeks throughout the academic year.
Total hours: 60 hours course


Students will have 3 hours of online/in-person teaching and learning.
The course is broken down into theoretical teaching, covering content based on the
specification of WJEC or AQA examination boards
Students will be given an online learning platform to complete their independent study;
further revision on topics, homework assignments set by the teacher. It is expected that
students spend 4 additional hours working independently for each A Level subject.
Students wishing to complete their practical endorsements for any of the sciences will be
taught by the teacher for candidates’ non-examination assessments for AS and A2 levels.
Practical endorsements have traditionally taken place from March – to June.
This is subject to change depending on the examination board.
The practical endorsements will be held off of campus in a higher technology laboratory.
The course includes a one-day mock assessment for students to witness their predicted grades.

Course fees

  • £80.00 enrolment fee
  • £1,200.00 per subject.

How to apply

This qualification is linear. Linear means that students will sit all their exams at the end of the course.

To achieve the full Biology A Level you will be assessed across all 3 parts. All parts will be assessed by three paper-based examinations and practical assessments.

Course Duration

Our programme will take place 2 evenings a week for 2 hours each. The course duration is over 30 during the whole academic year.
30 weeks throughout the academic year.
Total hours: 120 hours course

Study Method

Students will have 4 hours of online/in-person teaching and learning.

Course Outcome

A Level in Biology (you must take the A Level exams and practical assessment to achieve this). Upon successful completion of the exams, you will receive an A Level in Biology issued by AQA/WJEC

Thinking of Going to University?

A Levels are assessed primarily through examinations, and in some cases, coursework and/or practicals too, which are then combined to give a final grade. If you are planning to go on to higher education, this grade can then be translated into Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) points. You will be awarded up to 56 points per A Level which can then be added together to reach the total number of UCAS points required by your chosen university.
