AQA is a leading provider of GCSE and A level qualifications and support services for teachers and students. It provides qualifications that are valued by employers and higher education and enable students to progress to the next stage in their lives.
A levels are at level 3 on the National Qualifications Framework, and they carry UCAS points, which will be awarded according to the grade achieved (A = 120, B = 100, C = 80).
It is not necessary to have any legal knowledge before starting this course. However, if you have GCSE Law, or have completed a Diploma in Law, this would greatly assist your studies.
All the topic areas need to be studied; although, if you have some prior legal knowledge, topic area 1 – the introduction to law - can be quickly completed.
