Entry requirements

All applicants must have an academic reference from their current school stating their predicted grades. These must in all cases include GCSEs at level 6 or above in English language and maths, and 3 other GCSEs at or above grade B.

2 'A' grades or above in Double Science including core and additional. 2 'A' grades or above including Chemistry and another science if taken as triple science.


The coursework element in the new A level Chemistry has been replaced by a focus on practical skills over a range of core practicals. There will be a new exam paper with questions related to these core practicals.  About 15% of total marks in the A-level exams will be based on practical questions. As well as answering questions in written exams, students’ practical skills will be assessed by teachers. This is in addition to the A level grade and will be reported as a ‘Pass’ on A level certificates. 20% of the marks on Chemistry papers will require the use of Level 2 mathematical skills.

There will be 3 exams at the end of year 13 covering all of the topics and questions relating to the core practicals.
