Entry requirements

This course builds directly on the OCR GCSE Computing and Edexcel GCSE ICT courses which you may have completed in Years 10 and 11. In order to have the necessary foundations we require a pass qualification. This shows us that you will have the determination to meet the substantial number of coursework deadlines throughout the two years of study. You will also need to have the ability to solve problems and to think on your feet. A grade C or higher in Mathematics is essential for most sections of the course. If you didn’t complete any GCSE Computing/ICT course then we would look at each case individually.
