Diagnostic Assessments

Click on a subject for information regarding diagnostic assessments:

Biology, Chemistry and Physics 
In order to ensure that students who apply for A Level Biology, Chemistry and Physics at the College are successful in their study of these subjects, the College requires that each student completes a single diagnostic assessment. The diagnostic assessment helps the College to identify areas of scientific strength and areas that need to be developed in each student. The assessment is also referred to if a student has borderline grades for the course entry requirements.
 
The assessment will take place between Monday 2nd July and Thursday  5th July and no specific preparation will be required.
