The AQA Baccalaureate is awarded to students who achieve at least three A levels (minimum grade E or 2/3), a broader study AS level subject and the EPQ, plus they must undertake a minimum of 100 hours of ‘enrichment activities’.
This is a complete curriculum programme, which adds a broader range of study, and includes the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).
This qualification is built on familiar subjects, so it can be tailored to fit in with existing curricula. It includes extracurricular activities and encourages a series of ‘enrichment activities’ covering personal qualities, perseverance, leadership, independence, time management, commitment and communication.
The AQA Bacc is accepted by universities; offers are based on the component parts of the baccalaureate, with students receiving their AQA Baccalaureate and enrichment certificates alongside their A level, AS level and EPQ certificates. The AQA Baccalaureate will not be available beyond 2020.
