A Levels

Study with CAVC and choose from some of the widest choices of AS and A Levels in the region.

About A Levels

Studying A-Levels is a great way to prepare for university study. Our full-time A Level programmes are aimed at school-leavers and you can choose from one of the widest choices of AS and A Levels in the region. We work with schools in the region on shared timetabling – which means you can also choose to stay at school and come to CAVC for an A Level subject not offered at your school. All students also study the Welsh Baccalaureate as part of the AS/A Level programme, giving you a broader experience and range of opportunities to develop.

Most of our A Level students study at our City Centre Campus and benefit from fantastic subject specific facilities. These include a dedicated Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Centre with impressive industry standard specialist laboratories. Our general teaching rooms are also exciting spaces and all students have access to the huge Success Centre for out of lesson study.

Minimum entry requirements for Summer 2022 have been reviewed to ensure learners enter the pathway suitable for them based upon their entry profile and their desired destination beyond college. We are offering 5 distinct pathways for September 2022. All 5 pathways will require a minimum of a C in English Language and Maths. The pathways are outlined in the table below:


 4 AS levels (Scholars)  3 AS levels  2 AS levels plus 1 BTEC   2 AS levels   Mixed/ BTECs
 Number of GCSEs C or above   9 6 6 6 5
 To include   5 A* - A 4 A* - B 2 A* - B 1 A* - B  -

Our A Level Scholars Programme

Our Scholars Programme is an excellent opportunity to gain the skills, knowledge and support to succeed at top-level universities.

Your CAVC

As an A Level student you can choose from a wide range of activities to widen your skills and experience, to help you boost your CV and UCAS Personal Statement and stand out from the crowd. These range from European exchanges, joining the Student Union, being a member of one of our successful Sports Academies or clubs or being part of our volunteering or extra-curricular programmes.

Your Future

In the past few years, more than 1,000 students progressed to university level study from CAVC! If university is your goal we provide advice and guidance on university choices, UCAS applications and personal statements. Our support team in the College is here to help you apply to university and progress. We also have regular expert talks and visits from universities across the UK.
