To study A Levels you need a minimum of five GCSEs at grade 4-9/A*-C or above including English Language. If you do not gain a grade 4/C or higher in GCSE Maths you will have to study GCSE Maths alongside your A Levels.

There are additional entry requirements for some subjects which are set out below. If these prevent you from studying a subject that is central to your progression plans after A Level, we will help you explore alternative routes.

We have recently updated our entry requirements to reflect the guidance received from Ofqual regarding the letter and number grading equivalencies. We are in the process of updating the course flyers.
