Application forms and criteria
Guidance on Selecting Courses
You are required to select the equivalent of three A Levels. If you are either a prospective Medicine or Oxbridge applicant then you also need to select a fourth A Level. All other applicants should only select three.
For vocational courses, a Diploma is the equivalent of two A Levels and an Extended Diploma is the three A Levels. So if you select a Diploma you must also select an A Level alongside it; if you select an Extended Diploma that is your full selection.
Therefore, there are three possible course combinations:
- Three A Levels
- One Diploma and one A Level
- One Extended Diploma
Subjects are organised into Blocks A through to D. You should select courses in three blocks and leave one block blank (unless you are a prospective Medicine or Oxbridge applicant).
Diploma courses appear in two blocks and you must select the same course in both blocks. Extended Diploma courses appear in three blocks and you must select the same courses in all three blocks.
Block E is our enrichment block which you can either complete now or wait until you have started with the Academy. If you are applying for the Millwall Lions Football Academy you need to select it in both Block D and Block E.
Example correct selections:
Three A Levels
BLOCK A: HISTORY A-LEVEL
BLOCK C: MATHS A-LEVEL
BLOCK D: BIOLOGY A-LEVEL
One Diploma and one A-level
BLOCK A: NATIONAL SPORT DIPLOMA
BLOCK B: NATIONAL SPORT DIPLOMA
BLOCK D: GEOGRAPHY A-LEVEL
