A-level: AAA excluding General Studies and Critical Thinking
In general we expect applicants to have two ‘traditional’ academic subjects at A-level. See our accepted A-level subjects document to see which subjects we accept.
GCSE: We expect applicants to have a substantial number of GCSE passes at a high standard. Applicants from countries where English is not the first language will also need a grade B in GCSE English language, or another appropriate English language qualification, see below.
Other course specific tests:
When an applicant is taking the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) this can be considered alongside A-levels and may attract an alternative offer in addition to the standard offer. If you are taking A-levels, this would be AAB at A-level and grade A in the EPQ.
