Course requirements

Minimum criteria for entry 2018
 
We stipulate grades 7/6 or A/B in particular GCSE subjects, at least a grade 6 in English language and a 5 in maths, and an average GCSE score across the best eight of your subjects as follows:
 
• For three A levels: 6.0
 
• For four A levels: 7.0
 
(A* = 8, A = 7, B = 6, etc.) 
 
Note that only GCSE/IGCSE courses count towards the average score, not other types of qualification.
 
These are minimum requirements.
