At Birkenhead School, students in the Lower Sixth typically study four subjects, only sitting external AS Level examinations in those subjects where the specification has not yet been reformed. In reformed subjects, an end of year examination is set by the department. Students then continue with either three or four subjects in the Upper Sixth. The Extended Project Qualification may be taken alongside three or four A Levels.
