A Level qualifications have changed in recent years to become LINEAR in nature. This means that they can only be offered as 2 year courses with all examinations at the end of the course.

DGSB does not offer AS Levels.

Year 12 students choose 3 subjects to study through Year 12 and 13.

It may be possible to change a subject within the first month of Year 12.

After this point there can be no dropping of subjects at any time.
