A Levels

If you meet our entry requirements, you can select from our wide range of A-levels and BTEC Certificate/Extended Certificate subjects. If you intend to progress to a very selective university or course, you may need to study specific subjects. We can advise you about this at your interview. To ensure that you can cope with the workload involved with A levels and BTEC Certificates/Extended Certificates, your average GCSE point score will be taken into account.

  • If you have a point score of at least 5.8 you will normally be offered four AS levels.
  • If you have a point score between 5 and 5.8 we would guide your selection of AS levels and BTEC Certificates from an appropriate range of subjects. Some subjects also have specific entry requirements, for example AS-level Mathematics students must achieve a grade B in GCSE Mathematics. These requirements are detailed on each course page. Certain A level subjects are more challenging than others and therefore require higher overall achievement at GCSE. These subjects include Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Further Mathematics, Mathematics, Philosophy, Physics and Statistics.

More information can be found on specific course pages.
