The College will always treat each applicant as an individual. Should you not have or not expect to obtain the grades stated above, or not have relevant industry-related experience, the College would still welcome your application for this course as this will enable us to identify whether this course is, in fact, the right course for you or whether another course may be more appropriate.
- Paper 1: The Nature of Law and the English Legal System - Criminal law
- Paper 2: The Nature of Law and the English Legal System - Tort
- Paper 3: Law of Contract or Human Rights Laws
All three papers are written exams, lasting two hours each and each worth 33% of the A-level course. They are a combination of multiple choice, short answer and extended writing questions

Degrees in Law, Criminology, Psychology, Business, and European Studies are only some of the options available to you. Some students go on to be Solicitors, Barristers or Legal Executives but equally Law has many transferable skills that can be useful for working in other sectors.
You will take three subjects over two years.
We offer a small number of BTEC courses at Sefton Sixth Form College. You can study one BTEC course alongside your two A-levels.
It is not expected that a student would attend both sites, but the feasibility of this would be discussed on an individual basis. Potential timetable clashes and workload would need to be considered in detail for this to be a possibility.
