The Law A level includes two major components – AS level and A2 level. The AS level is a qualification in its own right and may be studied for on a one-year distance learning course.
Each lesson begins with a set of clearly stated objectives and an explanation of its place in the overall programme of study.
Effective learning is encouraged through frequent activities and self-assessment questions.
The course includes ten Tutor-marked Assignments (known as TMAs), six in the AS course and four in the A2.
This course prepares candidates for the AQA Law A level syllabus 2160 for examination in 2014 and later years. Most candidates will start with the AS specification 1161 and then study the A2 syllabus 2161.The full A level qualification comprises AS and A2. We have chosen this syllabus as it is the most suited to distance learning.
Assessment is by four written papers, two at AS and two at A2. There is no coursework.
Students Studying Law A level typically either go on to study Law at university level or enter into law firms to continue their education in a vocational setting. This is what Charlotte Coleman, one of our 2010 students, had to say.
“I work in a law firm, so that was why I chose Law A level. With my qualifications I can now go onto university!”
Within this qualification there are the following courses
