Entry requirements

The minimum entry requirement to study A-Levels is at least six GCSE grades A*-C (including English, Maths and Double or Triple Science). The average of all the GCSEs taken must be grade B or higher. We will not count ‘GCSE-equivalent’ qualifications (for example BTEC, DIDA, OCR Nationals).

Students must also achieve at least Grade B in the subjects that they wish to study. Where students have not studied a subject before, comparable grades will be used as a guide.

The subjects a student choses to study at A Level have a large impact on future progression to university and degree choice. We will consider each individual's circumstances and offer appropriate guidance and support to help students make the right subject choices.
