A-levels Subject Surpass Vocational Courses
4’000 more students in the UK result to be undertaking academic subjects rather than vocational courses. This however, does not mean that it will result in more college students enrolling Universities.
Mary Curnock Cook, UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) chief executive welcomed the change as choosing A-levels means teenagers can keep their options open without having to fix a career path so early in life. “It’s now a good decision to take A levels even if you are not an A* student.”
