GCSE Point Scores

In advising students as to the most suitable choice of post-16 courses/programmes of study, we use a GCSE 'Point Score' as a benchmark.

The Score is made up from the best six GCSE grades achieved by the student using the following scale:-

A* - 8 points

A - 7 points

B - 6 points

C - 5 points

D - 4 points

E - 3 points

F - 2 points

G - 1 point

This process has been used successfully over a number of years and proved to be an accurate predictor of likely success through the various possible routes of study.

Yellow Route:

  • To study 4 A Level subjects over 2 years – 42 points (minimum) including Maths & English (following consultation)
  • To Study 3 A Level subjects over 2 years points – 30 points (minimum) including Maths & English

Green Route:

  • To study a green route a point score of 30 points from at least 4 separate subjects

N.B. Although, as stated above, these ‘scores’ are good predictors of likely success upon entry into the Sixth Form, each student is treated as an individual and the post GCSE Interview is a very important process. Parents are welcome to be present at these interviews.
