The GCSE examinations are one of the key times in a pupil’s academic life. These exams not only indicate educational success and achievement thus far, but also pave the path for progression to A-Level and beyond.
Why study GCSE Courses at Swansea College?
GCSE students at Swansea College may, depending upon their age and circumstances, choose to study out two-year programme. Students come to Swansea College for GCSE courses primarily because of our small class sizes and location Combined with an outstanding programme of pastoral support, we ensure students receive that extra level of personal attention they require for success.
Swansea College offers one of the widest range of GCSE courses, with ambitious students joining a number of routes:
One-year retake course:
The one year retake course is only available for students repeating GCSE or who have had an interrupted education.
If students have had an interrupted education, considerations may be made to allow them to study a one year course instead of two years. Please contact the college with this request and provide as much information as possible in the request.
These students may also be welcome to take part in our live lessons if they choose and if the material being covered will benefit them in their retake.
One-year fast track course:
The GCSE fast track is designed to accommodate students who wish to take a few GCSEs each year or for students who have not attained target grades. This option may also be suitable for students who have moved to the UK from other countries or had an interrupted education.
