ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
To access Level 3 (A Levels and BTEC National Extended Certificate)
courses, you need to secure at least Grade 4 in both GCSE English
Language and GCSE Mathematics, and need to secure at least
three other GCSE grades at 4 (for new specifications) or C
(for old specifications) or a Level 2 BTEC Pass.
As you can see from the subject pages in our Course Guide, if you are
looking to take an A Level course that you have studied at GCSE, then
in most subjects a GCSE Grade of 5 or B is preferred. If you fall short
of a 5/B, you cannot assume that you will secure a place on the course
and will be required to meet with the Head of Department in September
to discuss whether you might be offered a place on a trial basis.
The step up from GCSE to A Level work is particularly steep in Biology,
Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. Students should be clear that in
other than the most exceptional circumstances, they will not secure a
place on these courses without at least a Grade 6 in the subject at GCSE.
What happens if a student gets five GCSE passes but fails
to secure Grade 4s in Maths or English?
A student in this position will be able to take some Level 3 (A Level/
BTEC) courses but their choice may be a little more restricted and
they will have to attend lessons in preparation for a re-sit in Maths
or English Language. A student who does not secure 4s in both
will only be able to enrol for the Access Course (see overleaf).
