Does anybody know how the AQA bacc is viewed by the universities? I have trouble understanding its value, since each of the individual parts can be acquired independently of the bacc, and the bacc itself just seems to be a layer of administration. (See http://web.aqa.org.uk/qual/bacc.php
To complete the bacc, you need:
- 3 A-levels,
- an AS in general studies, critical thinking or citizenship,
- 'Personal development' - basically a part time job and some community work,
- and the Extended Project. Which can be in anything. I wait to see how the schools will cope with mentoring that.
