Intermediate Level Course (GSCE/BTEC re-sit) Level 2

At NEW College we offer one-year Intermediate (Level 2) courses.  These allow students to improve on the grades gained in Year 11 and/or fill any gaps in their qualifications.

A large percentage of our Level 2 students move onto AS Level courses on completion of a successful one-year Intermediate programme.

Level 2 Entry Requirements (Pathway 5)

To study at Level 2 you should have achieved a good range of GCSEs (or equivalent) mainly at grades D and E.
